"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true."
Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability.
This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.

Designing Personal Sustainability

ON JAN 30, 2016
“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.”
In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. A collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design, she provides useful advice in how to sustain yourself when you work on your own. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.

Zofia Pietrowicz is a senior at Lawrence Technological University, where she will graduate later this month in May, 2019. While the focus of her studies has been that of multi-disciplinary design, all of her focus circles around the idea of sustainability.
She believes that to design sustainably, there are three pillars to be considered: The people, the products, and the system itself.

The word “SUSTAIN” means to thrive under a given set of conditions, to endure. The term sustainability implies the state where existence occurs in set conditions. This term is extensively being used today in the context of architecture.
Sustainability in architecture may be a new term but the concept beneath it is ages old. From the pages of the past, we can trace the footprints of sustainable building culture.
