the design of Connection. Design choices can connect us with or disconnect us from the natural world, even our immediate surroundings.
the design of Commerce. Global commerce, from our stuff to supply chains, can be set up to help us devour, changing the face of the world before we even realize it. How can it help us conserve instead?
the design of Construction. How cities, roads, buildings, fueling stations, parks and recreational places are constructed makes a difference in how we live, where we live, and how much we use to do it.
the design of Change. If we thought about the outcomes, we might find new and more effective methods for seeking change.
This very provocative thinking… I like it.
Too limited; I would argue that Design (i.e. Sustainable Design) has seven areas of focus. See http://www.sustainability-support.org/areas-of-focus.html
Uhm … I meant say eight … 🙂
Whose behind this– sucky content and writing. It’s like a not funny Koch brothers parody
Dear Ki, I’m sorry you didn’t like my blog. Not sure I understand why it seems likd a parody of the Koch Brothers – maybe because I am trying to talk about the smaller, more everyday choices we make that affect the environment, so maybe it seems to you like I am saying that is all that matters. I have spent my professional life working on environmental policy so that is certainly important to me. This blog is a place where I like to think about the smaller design choices in our world, and in our patterns of consumption, that affect these bigger issues. Thanks for reading.
