Abstract [en]

Climate change has impacts, on its own and from measures for mitigating it. Environmental impacts influence humans through our abilities to uphold services such as providing food and through our moral caring for nature. Therefore, a framework on social sustainability can be relevant for addressing the climate challenge and other sustainability issues. Such a framework could help identifying how humans can be affected by different proposed climate actions. We consider, as a first step, an overview of what ultimately can be seen as human well-being, which is strongly connected to aspects of justice. Scholars in ethics, psychology and development studies have for several decades been theorising human well-being. The results so far are typically lists that include elements such as life itself, friendship and religion. This far, however, researchers have only to a limited degree explicitly related the notions of human well-being to the challenges of actions for sustainability. The challenges include aiming to be holistic in the sense of covering a large enough share of the central aspects of human well-being, delays between cause and effect, and using an accessible vocabulary due to the already high complexity of the sustainability issues. In this study, we focus on these and other challenges through a conceptual analysis. The analysis is applied to material collected through a theoretical literature review, using a snowballing technique. Our starting point is the social sustainability approach social life cycle assessment (SLCA). SLCA has been developed for systematic evaluation of the impacts from a product’s production, consumption and waste management on human well-being. The approach clearly aims to support human well-being, but we have identified opportunities to complement SLCA literature on it. We expect to have comprehensive results from the study at the time of the conference.
