The success of most sustainable objectives (i.e. food, housing, energy, etc.) relies primarily on resource allocation, practical application and environmental conditions; however, the success of building community relies primarily on the people and personalities of the community members. Bringing people together with different beliefs and personalities can make community building one of the most challenging disciplines of sustainability.
Everyone has experienced how easy it can be to disrupt the harmony of a family or social group. The community structure and lifestyle play a large role in the overall success of the community objective. Lifestyle considerations that affect social harmony and stability include: how close people live and work together, the agreed doctrine for behavior, the application of conflict resolution, and the development of adequate problem solving skills. When mutual respect and common beliefs coexist between the members of a community, challenges and conflicts can generally be resolved quickly and peacefully.
