“Global interaction, rather than insulated isolation, has been the basis of economic progress in the world. Trade, along with migration, communication, and dissemination of scientific and technical knowledge, has helped to break the dominance of rampant poverty and the pervasiveness of ‘nasty, brutish and short’ lives that characterized the world. And yet, despite all the progress, life is still severely nasty, brutish and short for a large part of the world population. The great rewards of globalized trade have come to some, but not to others.” (Amartya Sen, Foreword, Make Trade Fair, Oxfam 2002)

The present world is sophisticated, mechanised and globalised one; the rates of development in countries are bigger than before. Globalization is linked with fast and noteworthy human changes. The movement of people from rural to urban areas has accelerated, and the growth of cities in the developing world especially is linked to substandard living for many. When we discuss about the sustainable development it is very important to think about the quality of human race. It is assumed that when development takes place the quality of living will also improve. One of the subject matter of sustainability science is the quality of human race. Attitudes and values have an imperative responsibility in the quality of human race.
