Market place in Norwich, England

East of England is one of the nine official regions of England. The current boundaries include Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Suffolk. In common usage the area may widely vary.

The East of England region shares part of its borders with London. Because of high degrees of interdependence it is arguable that neither London nor its neighbouring regions can approach sustainability in isolation.

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.
