Summary Key academics and professionals explore how social and environmental justice within and between nations need to be part of the policies and agreements underpinning sustainable development. The sustainability agenda needs to extend beyond the narrowly environmental to include social and economic reform, incorporating the interests involved in activism on human rights, political representation, corporate accountability and globalization.
