Every government is struggling with the problem of ensuring a sustainable future for people and nature. Achieving a healthy and sustainable environment depends absolutely on the understanding of how the environment and human well-being are related and the effect of human management on the environment.
According to a new paper published in the journal Science, a solid relationship with key social concepts is needed alongside science to make an indelible change in the environment. The authors highlighted seven major key social concepts that are usually ignored when trying to meet sustainability goals while stating categorically that these concepts are crucial in making decisions and formulating policies notwithstanding the difficulty in their measurement.
The paper urges social scientists to be more involved in the rescuing of the environment and securing a sustainable future for humans working together with the environmental scientists and policy makers
