also known as the People Pillar, according to Dr. Beate Littig & Dr. Erich Grießler,
from the Institute for Advanced Studies' Department of Sociology, in Vienna Austria,
"is a quality of societies. It signifies the nature-society relationships, mediated
by work, as well as relationships within the society. Social sustainability is given,
if work within a society and the related institutional arrangements satisfy an extended
set of human needs and are shaped in a way that nature and its reproductive capabilities
are preserved over a long period of time and the normative claims of social justice,
human dignity, and participation are fulfilled."
