A Living Systems Approach to sustainability Practice
Living Systems Design
Activate > Implement > Embed > Sustain
My key sustainability practice pattern is Living Systems Design – an approach to sustainability transformation that can be applied by sustainability practitioners to activities, teams, projects, programs, organisations and stakeholder networks.
Living Systems Design applies the key practice pattern of Activate-Implement-Embed-Sustain and has the deep purpose to “sustain the sustainability” into the future. Living Systems Design is a tailored, open, flexible, responsive and adaptable approach, as every organisational and operational context is different.
Living Systems Design integrates: complex adaptive systems thinking; emergence-based practice patterns; strategic design; participatory research and design; storytelling, narrative and anecdotal methods; experiential learning; and reflective practice. My practice contexts are: sustainable cities + communities; sustainable business + organisations; sustainable circular economy and sustainability culture.
