The Lens of Social Sustainability
The human and social dimensions of sustainability are critical components of a thriving and sustainable community. Yet, as compared with the environmental and economic dimensions, the human and social elements can be more difficult to define and quantify. In this newsletter we explore various human dimensions of sustainability, including optimism to tackle the world's challenges, diversity to spur innovations, and the linkages between the creative arts and sustainability. We also highlight a Brendle Group project underway in Santa Fe, and share some tools that we find helpful in addressing the human dimensions of sustainability. The social aspects of sustainability are important lenses and ones that Brendle Group considers for all of our projects and business development activities.
