Social Justice and Sustainability

[T]he politics of change has to be as much about social justice as about sustainability because my commitment to sustainability is more through the eyes of a social justice campaigner as much as anything else. And although I’m very committed to campaigns about biodiversity and pollution and protecting the natural world, my interest in those things is because that’s what makes life good and possible for human beings. It’s that social justice commitment that drives me.
