Books are a temporary escape to serve us for when we do not travel. For when we do not discover. Below is an experience with no books whatsoever.
The future is not simplicity, but complexity, better understood”
– Robertson, 2013
Following the completion of my master thesis on Digital Innovation for Sustainable Development (you can read it here) I decided that I’d like to share parts of it. First, I want to introduce you to something I found deeply fascinating. Something that helped me connect the dots I needed to create a semi-coherent 120 pages, 36,679 words, 241 505-characters piece. Below, I present a modified excerpt on Systems Thinking.
Sustainability has been one of the most used and misunderstood buzzwords of the past few decades. In a finite planet with finite resources civilization still aspires for infinite growth. And that just can’t happen. Sustainability focuses on striking a balance between societal needs, the boundaries of the environment and the need for economic prosperity in the long run. Looking good, feeling good, living in a healthy environment and getting more out of life means the public has to be more socially responsible.
