The Social and the Environmental


Date: 2012-03-17 15:44:42

Social issues are intrinsic to environmental issues. As long as there are people living in poverty, we won’t be able to protect forests or clean lakes. Poverty is not only lack of economic opportunities, but also lack of educational and meaning-making opportunities. The human community that lives near this forest is simply seeking for ways to make their lives work. How can we create rich lives (as in simple, but with abundant well-being) without exceeding the regenerative capacity of the planet?
