Creating a Sustainable Society

There are two steps to creating a sustainable society: creating awareness and modifying behavior.

Creating awareness goes beyond identifying the faults in our society, and the steps to fix it. Creating awareness means reconstructing perceptions about our true ecological footprint, and emotionally attaching each individual to our sustainable concept.

Modifying behavior is challenging. Change is a hard concept, and paired with cultural ties to behavior systems- dismaying. However, if we go back to the fundamentals, the task is not so daunting. If our society consumes based on their real needs instead of manufactured wants, we can prevent waste.

As designers we can create the awareness and promote sustainable systems. We can design with the environment in mind, and we can work to prevent as much waste as possible.
