A sustainable system is one that can operate for the long term with minimal impact as a result of its inputs and outputs and on the foundations on which it depends including Natural, Social and Financial Capital. Visit website of Sustainable Systems Method for more information.
A sustainable practice is a process or behavior, a way of doing things that supports a sustainable system.
The Sustainable Systems Method and The Habitat Project
The Sustainable Systems Method under development with People Systems and things is planning to use the various Habitat Sustainability Features and the project as a whole as a test environment. Each feature will have this innovative method applied and where possible provide useful feedback into the design process. Mapping each sustainable feature to a Concept model will also provide useful documentation for future visitors and on-line participants.
