If you look up sustainable development, it often only addresses two concerns: the environment and the economy. But some definitions include a third concern that is equally important: the social imperative. Our new HEAD Talks video animates an article written by Professor Ann Dale and Dr. Lenore Newman called Sustainable Development for Some: “Green” Urban Development. To illuminate the social expense of urban development projects, it explores case studies in Victoria, Toronto, and Vancouver.
