Panacea-Bocaf Our precious planet "Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?" - Henry Ford Sustainable development design systems ensure the Bio diversity and life support for healthy ECO systems. These particular externalities have remained intrinsic to a design model of modern "development" and are still currently colonizing the worlds cultures and environment. This inferior design system continues to create the unnecessary demand of non renewable resources and energy whilst producing excessive waste and pollution downstream. Counter productive design systems in comparison to the alternatives described in this section The present EDUCATION on design systems is a gross mismanagment of resources. The above example is of Damanhur a sovereign Eco Village society using regional currency. currency is not educated to capcity. Source Source
Sustainability Achieving sustainability will enable the Earth to continue supporting human life. In ecology, sustainability is how biological systems remain diverse and productive. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes. The organizing principle for sustainability is sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture. Sustainability science is the study of sustainable development and environmental science. Healthy ecosystems and environments are necessary to the survival of humans and other organisms. Etymology The name sustainability is derived from the Latin sustinere (tenere, to hold; sub, up). Components Three pillars of sustainability Circles of sustainability Resiliency History Principles and concepts Scale and context Consumption Measurement 1.
The Universal Principles of Sustainable Development By Terry Mock and Tony Wernke, SLDI Co-founders Follow Terry and Tony on Twitter: Terry @SustainLandDev; Tony @Sustainable4U This article is Part 3 in the Fractal Sustainable Development Trilogy. Part 1: Designing a ‘Big Wheel’ for Civilization Part 2: Like Life Itself, Sustainable Development is Fractal As a comprehensive sustainable development decision model, The SLDI Code™ functions as a completely integrated, fractal matrix which leads decision-makers from the foundation of triple-bottom-line sustainability to sustainable results. This unique model (depicted graphically by the logo to the right) is a result of the input and vetting of numerous sustainable project leaders. NOTE: The principles embedded in the SLDI Code Sustainable Development Matrix are universal in their application and need not be confined to land development projects. The SLDI Code is not designed to replace or compete with other more narrowly defined programs or regulatory constraints. Profit (Economic Capital)
