On such way it is an improvement for sustainable development mainly because of taking the real Nature as such and the Nature of the planet Earth as the most important part of the solution for a long life of Homo sapiens on the planet Earth.

On 25th September 2011 in Xiamen, China the declaration “The World Thinker’ Panel on the Sustainable Future of Humankind” “WTP – SFH” was announced, which is later on included as it is.
