Recently submitted to CRC Research, Dockside Green: Insight on the social aspects of the LEED- ‐ND standard community development examines the social aspects of the LEED-ND development in Victoria, BC: Dockside Green. Dockside Green employs innovative, state-of-the-art green development practices to achieve sustainability, and the community is regarded as Victoria's first environmentally sustainable community. However, how do environmental innovations influence social sustainability?  Through narrative and audio links to interviews with Dockside Green residents, the article aims to construct an image of lifestyles within Dockside Green and their relationship to the development's environmental mandate.

The article provides further research and different perspectives to the Triple Bottom Line Practice: From Dockside to Dockside Green case study, contributing to a fuller picture of how Dockside Green is operating as a sustainable community development. Retrieve the article from here.
