Policy Study

02/12/2014

Sustainability is about intergenerational solidarity; that is to say it is about framing our socio environmental policies in terms of the welfare and wellbeing of future generations. Solidarity and social justice are the core values of socialism and have been the guiding principles and values for the development of the policies of social democratic and socialist parties since their foundation.

Our concern has always been to work for social justice and against the deep unfairness of social inequalities in society. Overcoming the problem of global climate change is very much an intergenerational issue which involves analysing, planning and policy making for a period which will take us to the end of this century. It is also about social and environmental justice, given that climate change will have particularly negative impacts of the most socially vulnerable communities.
