Sustainability is shaped to be much more narrow and exclusive than it should be. We must acknowledge the historical and current whiteness and privilege in the fields of sustainability and conservation, while generating mutual support in the face of intertwined racial, socioeconomic, and environmental injustice. In order to be ecologically sustainable we need human sustainability: communities of respect, support, and justice. We must generate pride in the diverse groups and cultures that have sustainability embedded in them that are actively excluded from or harmed by sustainability and conservation efforts. Creating a more holistic and inviting approach will strengthen all aspects of sustainability, and beyond!
