EcoDistrcits– A Framework for Sustainable Community Development- Cordell Bock

Our planet, society, and economic systems are components of sustainability that serve as umbrellas for larger systems that govern our world. The goal of attaining sustainability, for some, is ultimately reaching a point where these components of sustainability can work in equilibrium, or even work to empower one another. Communities, at the forefront of sustainability, serve as the potential catalyst for a sustainable, just world to become our reality. Injustice (environmental and social), poverty, inequities, and climate change are issues in sustainability that test the ability of communities to respond to these issues. This research will explore the framework for sustainable community development as proposed in EcoDistrict initiatives to create not only sustainable communities but to push for a state of resiliency.
