Answer

Theoretically (The Theory), equal emphasis should be given to all three dimensions of sustainability.

Right now (Now), too little emphasis is given the environment (illustrated as a small overlap between the economic and environmental dimensions). The social dimension is larger than the environmental (illustrated with a larger overlap between the social and economic dimensions). However, some countries with a high rate of poverty may illustrate the social differently.

The goal is to balance the three dimensions (The Change Needed) by implementing incremental changes in our lives.

Likely, each entity’s circles will be different. How would you illustrate your own sustainability or that of an organization for which you work? Would your circles be of equal size or unequal size?
