LIVING SUSTAINABLY is a CROSS SUBJECT FRAMEWORK OF CULTURE AND ECOLOGY expressed visually as LANDSCAPES and conceptually as CULTURAL NICHES which are both ECO-CULTURAL ENTITIES that change through ENVIRONMENTAL RE-SOCIALISATION as a principle of CULTURAL EVOLUTION directed towards ONE PLANET LIVING; this involves incorporating MATERIAL AND SPIRITUAL VALUES into COMMUNITY ACTION PLANS to manage:-

  • CONSUMERISM to reduce SOCIAL INEQUALITES OF CONSUMPTION ;
  • BIODIVERSITY to establish ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY ;
  • HOUSEHOLD ECONOMIES to maintain LOW IMPACT LIVELIHOODS WITH SMALLER FAMILIES ;
  • COMMUNITY ECONOMIES to operate LOCAL CURRENCIES AND SERVICES;
  • CULTURAL HERITAGE to encourage A SENSE OF PLACE
  • and LAND USE to promote LOW INTENSITY CROPPING.

COMMUNITY ACTION PLANS embrace PARTICIPATORY CITIZENSHIP supported by SOCIAL LEARNING about COMMUNITY ACTION CYCLES for ENVIRONMENTAL RE-SOCIALISATION.

LANDSCAPES are categorised as NATURAL AREAS, BUILT ENVIRONMENTS and DESIGNED ENVIRONMENTS for SOCIAL LEARNING
