The content we cover this month ties together the approach we take to guide your year of sustainable action in our Self-Coaching planner, with some of the free resources that exist on this website.
Join us now as we start with an exploration of what sustainability REALLY means (in its wicked complex glory), understand how your Sustainable Self fits into the picture, identify what your values are and how they can be used as a navigational system, and scale the wicked complexity back to simple, easy to implement actionable steps for sustainable living success.
Your Sustainable action plan simplified!
Let’s get started.
THE PATH TO SIMPLICITY
Our path towards Sustainability Simplified is outlined below. Each of our stops along the way offers an opportunity to learn, explore, and grow.
SYMBOLS FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Each of our Take Action themes has its own natural symbol. Using symbology and storytelling has been harnessed by Indigenous groups for generations and has since been researched as an effective tool for committing knowledge to long term memory.
We’ve selected coral as our symbol for simplifying sustainability. Many of us will have seen (either in real life or media) the beautiful, complex, unique and vast deposits of coral that make up our worlds reef habitats. Coral offer so many ecosystem services to the world, offering a biodiverse habitat for oceanic life, protecting our coastlines from erosion, cycling nutrients such as carbon and nitrogen, and offering human amenity in the form of food, medicine and tourism. While of great importance and with direct links to the pillars of sustainability, these aren’t the main reason why we selected coral.
Coral has been chosen as a symbol of sustainability for its lifecycle. If you’re not aware of how coral thrives (or need a refresher) let’s recap…
a) the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level.
b) avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.
