EMBRACE SUSTAINABILITY AS A COMMUNITY PRACTICE Organisms do not survive in isolation. Instead, the web of relationships within any living community determines its collective ability to survive and thrive..
MAKE THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE Historically—and for some cultures still in existence today—the path between a decision and its consequences was short and visible.
