Social Sustainability

Social sustainability encourages communities to promote social interaction and foster community investment while respecting social diversity.

Ways to be socially sustainable:

Easy: Reconnect with a friend or family member by calling them once a week

Moderate: Participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Challenge

Advanced: Volunteer one hour per week with a branch of COAR at UMW
