There are powerful synergies between sustainable development and social justice at the community level, nationally and in the international arena. Clean, green and attractive neighbourhoods foster safe and strong communities, and improve the quality of life. This book covers six key areas for a sustainable future: energy, transport, international climate change, waste, sustainable communities and sustainable agriculture

'In the past, there has been a perception that environmental and social goals may be mutually exclusive or even in conflict. This report helps us move beyond this view to one which identifies many positive synergies between the two, at all levels. I hope that it provokes many more people into considering how they can take forward its conclusions.' - Rt Hon Margaret Beckett MP
