@ VOL 6
ON SEP 13, 2016
Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?

"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.
Designing Personal Sustainability
“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.” In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway is a collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design. Join her in "designing personal sustainability" as she talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.
Introduction of Florence Micoud
Hi Wanaka. We have the pleasure to introduce another speaker & true sustainability warrior, Florence Micoud.Florence Micoud has 20 years of professional experience in environmental, sustainable and ecological knowledge. Florence supports organisations, businesses, communities and households on the path towards sustainability, so that we make our impacts restorative as well as improve our well-being and feel good about ourselves.The theme is "Unraveling sustainability" and it will be tied in with Wanaka. People think sustainability is complicated or there is no consensus and therefore tend to procrastinate/turn their backs to it. In fact, an internationally accepted, scientifically based, non-judgemental tried and tested framework explains what it is and how to get there. With visuals, diagrams, examples, the fabulous Florence helps people to understand, learn the language and begin to apply the principles of sustainability in their lives.Website URL: aimatsustainability.orgFacebook : https://www.facebook.com/aimatsustainability/We all looking forward to see you at stunning Rippon Hall next week!PKN Crew
