For the month of January, the UVSP acknowledges the lack of diversity sometimes associated with sustainability. It is important to acknowledge not just environmental sustainability, but social, human, and economic sustainability as well.

“At its core, social sustainability looks at the societal structures in place that allow people to live healthy, happy lives . . . Caring about climate change is a privilege, and until we create more just, stable societies, we can’t expect everyone to be enthusiastically on board with supporting eco-conscious activities.”
EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES ON INTERSECTIONAL ENVIRONMENTALISM
The UVSP would like to acknowledge the importance of intersectional environmentalism and how much social justice plays in the sustainability movement. In the new year, we hope to further diversify the movement by sharing some educational resources with folks who would love to learn more!
