Keep it simple

We are operating at an environmental deficit:

“Today humanity uses the equivalent of 1.6 planets to provide the resources we use and absorb our waste. This means it now takes the Earth one year and six months to regenerate what we use in a year.” (Global Footprint Network)

Development for development’s sake is not the answer. We cannot achieve sustainability without reduced consumption.
