Sustainability is planning the actions of today with tomorrow in mind and how it will affect future generations.

making decisions today with tomorrow in mind. e.g building a block of flats now because the need in the near future will be for cheap, single person or small family housing in a particular area.

Good suggestion.
Remember that there is also an issue to do with exactly how the actions of today will affect them...
This tends to be negative, but are there any positives ?

Sustainability is about developing places today to last for tomorrow, and it is about using resources more sparingly so that they will last longer.

Good definition.
What aspects of your life are sustainable or not ?

It is meeting the needs of the present without compromsing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A process is considered sustainable when it can be done time and time again without extremely high prices and negative environmental effects.
