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.
