A Guide to Being


We live in a world which over uses the term sustainable there are multiple meanings. This is partly because the ultimate definition renders our world as unsustainable, eventually everything finite comes to an end. Should greater emphasis be given to the joy of life while it is still with us or should we stave of the impending horror for as long as possible. A Guide to Being Unsustainable explores what makes life bearable and why that is not at odds with what we think sustainability mighty be. The Scottish Ecological Design Association has published the first part in October 2018, part 2 completes this stage of the Guide after which they will be brought together into one publication.
