WHAT: Design plays a pivotal role in the sustainability of our buildings, communities and products, as well as in the systems we use to handle transportation, energy and water. Can we change our perspective on the built environment from "projects that are created and finished" to a more sustainable one of "systems that perform over time"? What social factors should be considered when creating built solutions?

Sustainability is a complex concept with many branches, variations, stakeholders, slogans, books and branding efforts. The drivers of sustainability combine urgent with long-range and individual with collective, thus defying easy verbal description. With some studies showing that up to 60% of the general population are “visual learners,” there is a great need to develop, standardize and use visual methods for describing the whys and wherefores of sustainability.
