Ongoing environmental and social changes, such as climate change, population shifts, and globalization, force us to seriously consider the dilemmas of sustainability: How can communities develop their human and natural resources, while at the same time ensuring long-term viability? The Sustainability Scholars Forum is a research working group, sponsored by the Humanities Center at Wayne State University, that is focused on investigating and promoting sustainability in the U.S. and beyond, noting the complex intersections of environmental, social, economic, and cultural themes.
