Prominent ethicists from around the globe seek to deepen contemporary understandings of environmental sustainability, human flourishing, and the pursuit of justice. Just Sustainability is a broad-ranging study of the social, economic, and conceptual changes needed on a global level for all of life to flourish in the 21st century. As the play on words in the title suggests, these discussions of sustainability continually invoke the norm of justice, which has become a central part of Catholic thought and magisterial teaching in the contexts of economic development, technological innovation and environmental degradation. In the editors' view, any viable path to sustainability must also be just - whether as norm guiding policy decisions or in the development of a comprehensive ethics of ecology, concepts of justice and sustainability must mutually inform one another in the 21st century. As with previous volumes in the CTEWC series, this book offers the perspectives of scholars from a number of social, ethnic, geographic, and economic backgrounds, making it a truly global contribution to the increasingly pressing conversation around how to care for and live in harmony with our increasingly degraded planet.
