Sustainability Science: a New Paradigm for Planning? | Planetizen

Sustainability Science: a New Paradigm for Planning? | Planetizen | Collaborative Voice | Scoop.it

Part of making something sustainable is making it stick in the mind of those you are impacting. Behaviors and the adoption of new behaviors involve speaking in the language of those you are trying to influence. The inner story telling through song, verbal folklore and imagery have more impact than the written word in many cultures. Consider how we acquire information- visually, tactilely, auditorally, experientially and emotionally. Our acceptance of a 'new story/paradigm' is dependent on our old stories. Read this article and consider the process of adoption.

Planners often struggle to define, communicate, and integrate sustainability goals into their plans and everyday practices.

“Poor” is a four-letter word.

“Poor” is a four-letter word. | Collaborative Voice | Scoop.it

Jack Kemp, Bob Dole’s running-mate in 1996, sought to spearhead a “new war on poverty.” George W. Bush called “deep, persistent poverty…unworthy of our nation’s promise”.No longer. Budgets are tight and the safety net is expensive. Mitt Romney famously said he was not “concerned about the very poor” because they have a safety net to take care of them. Mr Obama’s second-term plan mentioned poverty once, and on the trail he spoke gingerly of “those aspiring to the middle class”. “Poor” is a four-letter word.

 

You do what you can WHEN Barack Obama first ran for president, Emma Hamilton was part of that politically crucial cohort, the white working class. A tall woman with...
