The idea that a path to a sustainable future can be identified and followed has become an increasingly popular concept in global environmental science and policy. When we focus on the discussion in the sociotechnical literature, we see that the approach is mostly associated with the concept of measurement of changes happening in the environment in terms of climate change, emissions and the like. Thus on the basis of the arising circumstances or situations the changes can be small or large. Based on a continuum approach, we argue in this article that sustainability should be seen as an improvement resulting from multiple and overlapping collaborations to change the status quo by focusing on sustainable technologies. Herein we have focused on microbial activities and technologies that can be implemented in a larger scale which is a greener approach. The fundamental and almost unique feature of microbial technology is the extraordinary range of uses to which it can address and the unique range of human activities and needs it has and will have to be voluntarily exploited. Since the goals, products and needs of sustainable development are very different, microbial technologies have the potential to make a positive contribution to global efforts to achieve sustainable development at different levels and in different areas. In fact, microbial technology can be seen as an integral part of our journey towards sustainability. Herein it is proposed that the approach can be based on the existence of “stepping stones”: relevant interventions that capture or create opportunities and create momentum for the implementation of the development of a new, unpredictable form. We see the path being created, not given, with significant interventions bringing together resources and needs and creating new decisions across materials to overcome inertia in the society in which interventions are developed as significant responses to sustainability challenges.
