Principles > Quality of Life

Sustainability is related to the quality of life in a population or community - whether the economic, social and environmental systems that make up the community are providing a healthy, productive, meaningful life for all community residents, present and future. Whilst not all people and cultures value quality of life in the same way, some of the basic issues to consider when determining quality of life include the availability of employment, levels of homelessness and crime, and the presence of environmental pollution.
