    Social sustainability


    Community dynamics

  • A process for creating sustainable, successful places that promote wellbeing, by understanding what people need from the places they live and work.

    Social sustainability combines design of the physical realm with design of the social world

    infrastructure to support social and cultural life, social amenities, systems for citizen engagement

    and space for people and places to evolve.

    A valuable tool for thinking differently about place

    Not fully covered by existing frameworks

    A way of bringing in concepts that challenge conventional views Capable of being understood, quantified & actioned

    An evolving field internationally.
