Overview

Sustainable Communities and the Challenge of Environmental Justice / Edition 1

"Sustainability" and "environmental justice" have become shopworn catch-phrases, but here Agyeman (urban and environmental policy, Tufts U.) explains why they should be kept both fresh and sacred, despite the concepts' growing propensity for conflict. He argues there is at least potential for considerable theoretical and practical compatibility between the two ideas, and gives several strategies at various levels of endeavor which combine them. Although his focus is on ways to use the best of both ideas to create organizations or objectives that work for sustainability with environmental justice, he also takes into consideration the forces of community that may or may not see a way to use his ideas.
