Multidimensional Sustainability

BY NAOMI C. HANAKATA
@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

"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."

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.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 27th, 2015.

Cultural and Social Sustainability

BY DAN STEIN
@ VOL 15 ON NOV 30, 2017

When we hear about sustainability, we often think of energy, waste, transport, themes focused on economy and environment, . 
We are living in a world with more and more migration. A world becoming more interconnected and global. Does anyone really desire living in a place with walled off communities? We need to be paying more attention to creating communities that are culturally and socially sustainable. Can we make our diversity a community resource that builds strength and resilience, rather than fear?
