Build better societies

Social sustainability relates to the ability of a community to develop processes and structures which not only meet the needs of its current members but also support the ability of future generations to maintain a healthy community. Socially sustainable communities are equitable, diverse, connected and democratic and provide a good quality of life.

Business has a critical role to play also in social sustainability, which is the underlying driver behind 'ESG' (environment, social and governance) reporting which is mandatory for ASX listed companies. ESG performance issues include human rights, fair labor practices, living conditions, health, safety, wellness, diversity, equity, work-life balance, empowerment, community engagement, philanthropy, volunteerism, and more.

A failure or breakdown in social sustainability often manifests in ways which carry an enormous human toll including unemployment, domestic violence, mental illness, suicide, homelessness, drug addiction.

​​Collaborative campaigns can be designed to engage any or all of the stakeholders in social sustainability - government, NGOs, business, universities, healthcare workers, social experts and the community - to address the problems of today and explore solutions for sustainable prevention.

 

Below are some examples of social sustainability and transformation campaigns.
