The Sustainability Society

Common Frontiers is proud to support this project and lead the delegation to Venezuela.

Three themes of “sustainability” are mentioned by journalists, politicians, business leaders, and advocacy groups; what is not often discussed is the topic of a “sustainable society”.

The Project explores the approaches taken to achieve/maintain social justice, equity, fairness, and democracy by contrasting and comparing two countries, Norway and Venezuela, and how each uses its petroleum resource to promote a Sustainable Society. The Project examines those approaches in comparison and contrast to Canada as part of North America.

This promises the development of rich curriculum on this timely issue. The Sustainable Society project is in the process of being developed; it is anticipated that the release of the curriculum resource should occur sometime this spring. In the meantime, you are encouraged to view and utilize our five other Common Threads curriculum resources.
