Ethical and Sustainable Design: An attitude of mind.

Last Autumn I attended a seminar at NTU on Sustainable Design.

It was made clear that following Sustainable Principles involves certain values.

These include recognising that resources are finite.

People are not a commodity . They need respect.

I have already referred  to the seminar @ Classifora on Ethical and Sustainable Design.

This was  arranged by the APL .

Ethical and Sustainable standards  are linked.

Both treat  the consideration of people and resources with respect.

In practice this is not an easy option.

It takes time and effort to re-use materials.

Consideration of the people in India where Standstone is mined also requires an understanding of

 the “Bigger Picture”.

These ideas are new to some people.

Closer consideration is worth the effort if we are to think of the long term effects on the world we live in.
