Design your Environment
Integrity means The Whole Thing
Just like millions of people, young and old, all around the world, I see the devastating results of the past two centuries of industrial activity on our natural habitats and I feel saddened and concerned for the future. A brief look at the causes of most environmental destruction leaves us with a sense of despair at human stupidity and shortsightedness. But this very insight also contains the key to hope, and a better way forward. The obvious lack of design and systems thinking that is at the root of much of the destruction we have witnessed can be addressed by correcting the design (or lack thereof), at the process level. As a species, we now have more power and information available to us than at any other time in our known history. It is time to design the future we want!
