Relational values and policy mixes for sustainability

In the face of pressing global sustainability challenges, opportunities pass by while prevailing responses draw piecemeal from a basket of well-worn tools, with little consideration of larger, systemic effects. The concept of relational values is quickly gaining traction as a crucial, and previously overlooked, way of understanding what matters to people and why. By incorporating relational values into decision-making of all kinds, we can make environmental policies and programs implementable and effective.
