What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is the ability of something to be sustained into the future, and is generally advocated for and studied through the lens of humanity’s relationship with the natural world. Sustainability consists of 3 main pillars: environmental stewardship, social justice, and economic well-being.
Along these lines, sustainability “implies that the activities of the University of Kentucky are ecologically sound, socially just, and economically viable, and that they will continue to be so for future generations,” (UK Office of Sustainability). Focusing on sustainability at a University level also emphasizes these principles in coursework, research, events, and organizations.
A partnership between UK’s Office of Sustainability, Recycling, and Center for Applied Energy Research, WholeSum is a platform designed to inspire, inform, and encourage our University community to engage in sustainability. To learn more please visit this link.
