Where you live, work or visit, from local communities to countries, continents and the planet itself, or just somewhere you know about or are interested in.

What information might be relevant to quality of life or wellbeing in each area? What challenges or opportunities are there?

A good way to start an article is to see if there's an article about the place in Wikipedia, which you can adapt to include material relevant to sustainability. Or just build up a list of relevant links.
