3 Responses to The Forgotten Third Pillar of Sustainability

  1. While Andrzej gives a great high level and generic insights into the importance that social sustainability and ‘social capital’ plays in community sustainability, one of the pillars of “sustainability”, there is no useful discourse or clarity offered on the role that culture and the arts plays in environmental sustainability. It would be perhaps helpful to explore issues and roles that the cultural sector of society can play in environmental sustainability. If you’re interested in learning more about the specific role that artists and the cultural sector can play in environmental sustainability, please contact me – I will be giving a 1 hour workshop/presentation on this very topic at the Art for All Canada conference on March 4th. Thank you! – Les Luxemburger, MES, Owner and Creative Director of ART on the Go

      Hi Les. Thank you for reading and for your comment. While I am aware of the importance of culture and art in building sustainable communities, I am less familiar with ‘artist as facilitator’ of environmental stewardship. I would be interested in learning more about this relationship. Andrzej
