the sustainable society

Building on the success of previous projects, our Union is announcing the release of its sixth Common Threads Project: The Sustainable Society

Three themes of “sustainability” are mentioned by journalists, politicians, business leaders, and advocacy groups; what is not often discussed is the topic of a “sustainable society”. The Project explores the approaches taken to achieve/maintain social justice, equity, fairness, and democracy by contrasting and comparing two countries, Norway and Venezuela, and how each uses it petroleum resource to promote a Sustainable Society. The Project examines those approaches in comparison and contrast to Canada.
