Social Dimensions of Sustainability

ISOE developed perspectives for the further specification and operationalisation of the social dimension of sustainability. To this end, scientists identified five core elements to be monitored. The team subsequently formulated rules for social sustainability. For each core element, they proposed a set of indicators to describe the respective stages of social (non-)sustainability achieved.
