Planet Centered Design

Planet Centered Design

Conservation and learning from nature are also not enough, and neither are current approaches to sustainable innovation that focuses on creating ‘less bad’ products and services, rather than positive innovations that are focused on re-generative development. Collaborations for sustainable innovations are almost always human-centric rather than Planet-centric and therefore ‘solutions’ often miss out on the opportunity to integrate natural capital as an innovation partner, and later become the cause of more problems.

Our institutions, cities, innovations and frameworks need to be designed in a way that creates ecosystem services that contribute to Earth’s well being.
