Read this if you are new to the Blog

Posted by steve on September 19, 2004

The Blog features the tapescripts (mostly) of groups` s sessions to invent sustainable technology. (We also feature examples of sustainable inventing – we are searching for a sustainable inventing methodology.)
The tapescripts are followed by notes to verify the method, the findings and to reflect on what is being learned.

The creativity techniques they use are a kind of visualisation, where they “visit” a place or country which has solved the problem they are dealing with.
They describe their experiences as they go.

For sustainability, groups have discovered that no new technology is needed, it is the way old technology is used that is the issue.

That is to say sustainability promoting inventions are social inventions.

Inventions so far:
Radiality (city planning to radically reduce transport needs)

Sustainability circles (like study circles but leading to sustainable behaviour)
Inventing for the sustainable planet: Porena ( journeys in short novel form)
Centres of well-being (on-going)

New social order” the go along society” Interview with Porena City Manager (borrowed Genius)
