Key social science concepts for sustainability

We are very proud that our first paper as a working group was published in Science this past April. This was our effort to translate and introduce several major social science principles into ongoing conversations about sustainability and environmental science, policy, and management. The paper identifies “seven key social concepts that are largely absent from many efforts to pursue sustainability goals.” These include: human wellbeing, values, agency, inequality, power, culture, and justice.
