Indicators For A Sustainable Coventry

In Coventry, as in so many other cities across the world, people are becoming more concerned about the pressures that our everyday lives are putting on the earth’s resources.

This concern isn’t just about protecting the environment for the sake of it but it is because more and more people are seeing that the state of the world’s natural resources like clean air and fresh water and the state of the environment we live in affect our own health, well being and happiness.

Indicators for a Sustainable Coventry brings together 20 measures for the city which reflect:

six indicators were neither positive nor negative.
