Sustainability is about sustaining all life – and is achievable if we redevelop our understanding of the whole system of life-giving processes. Then, we can reintegrate our buildings – and our communities – with life on Earth and have our built environment become a process of healing and restoration. To do this, we need to shift the role of humans so we participate with nature as co-equals. This presentation explores the practical concepts of integrating our technical perspectives with the living system processes that support life. This is not as hard as it may seem – if we make a real change in the way we think.
