Culture of Sustainability


How do the three pillars of sustainability—environment, economy, and society—come together in the daily routines of a society? Research in Community (RIC) has given itself the goal of building a network to investigate and promote a culture of sustainability. The “Wheel of Sustainability” was developed as part of the research at RIC by Felix Wagner and Sandra Mende. It is intended to help illustrate the elements and the dynamics of a culture of sustainability and thereby give guidance for the societal organizational process, which includes reflection, negotiation, implementation, and evaluation.
