    Default the whole of society/the whole society

    How can we encourage the whole of society/the whole society to be involved?

    Society goes without an article, but how about the whole of society/the whole society ? Do both work fine?

    Thank you in advance.

    Use "the whole of society..." Or, even more likely, "society as a whole..."
