​​​Thank you for your interest. There are many global issues that will only be advanced when #ResponsibleDesign is embodied into the ongoing change process. Ensuring tangible benefits for humanity and ecology are infused with our lifestyle is the simple message. Putting that into practice worldwide is understandably no simple task. The many ideas, directions and links above will assist.
