Relational values: A new paradigm for sustainability?
As communities and nations around the world grapple with environmental change and the challenge of sustainability, there is increasing attention to the role that values play and might play in enabling stewardship and transformation. Furthermore, there is a widening view of values to extend beyond the appreciation of nature itself (intrinsic values) and the appreciation of what nature does for us (instrumental values), to include preferences, principles and virtues about human-nature relationships (relational values). By giving a common framework for ideas long studied in a range of disciplines, the concept of relational values may serve as a tool for interdisciplinary integration and the meaningful inclusion of the social sciences and interdisciplinary approaches on values into sustainability science.
