Sustainability is achieved when social, environmental, and economic aspects are in balance. The social aspects of sustainability can easily be lost in a world driven by markets and GDP. Peoples’ health and well-being are often overlooked in decisions about the economy and the environment. As the environmental justice movement continues to grow, and the environmental movement continues to strive to be more inclusive, it is imperative for people to understand the social implications of our globalized world. Explore false solutions, discover different perspectives, and strive to understand where people are coming from who suffer disproportionately because of race and class. Become more informed about the social aspects of sustainability and the underlying issues that perpetuate these problems so we can all work towards a more just world that supports people, honors the environments, and creates viable economies.
