"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true." In Multidimensional Sustainability from Tokyo Vol. 127, Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability. This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.

Join her in "designing personal sustainability" as she talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life.
