INTRODUCTION

This journey makes a distinction between technologies which are 'clever' and those which are 'intelligent' in their design, determined by the extent to which seek to either manipulate or emulate natural processes. This latter approach has produced such innovations as BedZED, proof that sustainable lifestyles are possible within the fair share of our per capita Ecological Footprint (EF).

The journey also takes a look at our concept of 'wealth' and what true 'quality of life' means, suggesting that we might more accurately measure our prosperity by Gross National Happiness, not Gross National Product (GNP), which merely reflects the rate at which we are turning our resources into rubbish.

The Toolkit suggests 12 simple actions you can take to effect change immediately across the twelve topics of The Web of Hope Resource.
