Ecojustice = Social justice = Ecojustice?

Or should we begin routinely referring to a fight for a better life for the natural world (including humans) as sustainable justice?

Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle has been a huge http://itsgettinghotinhere.org/2008/04/09/sustainable-justice/, and it looks like her partner and she have ventured into the restaurant domain to create a local business that benefits as many local people as possible. The Slow Food movement isn’t called slow for nothin’ though – and weaving this kind of sustainable justice business into any community might take longer than some guess.

I’ve posted other links in the past for sustainable justice – here’s a blog I just came across…certainly worth taking a look for yourselves and for teaching ideas at all grade levels.
