In the editors’ view, any viable path to sustainability must also be just—whether as norms guiding policy decisions or in the development of a comprehensive ethics of ecology.Contributors to Just Sustainability represent a wide variety of perspectives from social, ethnic, geographic, and economic backgrounds, making it a truly global contribution to the increasingly pressing issues of environmental degradation, its effects on the people of the world, and ethical and moral responses.
