What is social sustainability?
Let’s talk social sustainability. Despite being equal partner in the quest to sustainability (along with economic and environmental sustainability), it still seems to be left to last in our planning. Too often it is a bit of an after thought to include social sustainability in our planning considerations. Which seems strange to me, because if we’re not planning for people, then who are we planning for?
It’s complex, it’s messy, it’s hard to measure, but I truly believe it is so important for us to get our social sustainability right and put people first.
