Natural linkages between sustainability and social services

On July 31, the District Department of the Environment and the Office of Planning conducted the Sustainable DC Twitter Town Hall, an online chat about how health, education, jobs, and equity relate to sustainability.  (Check out the chat on Tweet Chat.)

Any skepticism about the relationship between these four issues and sustainability was quickly put to rest.   Environmental, planning, and other sustainability experts chatted effortlessly with social services folks about important issues.   We chatted about food, learning, volunteering, leadership development, health, and much more.   Those topics demonstrating special synergy have been captured in the selected tweets Storified in Sustainable DC's relevance to low-income advocacy and services.
