ENGAGED SUSTAINABLE DESIGN: CREATING MORAL AGENCY
by Louise St. Pierre, Emily Carr University of Art + Design
A beautiful story-weaving of personal experiences, written by Louise, about getting outside of her comfort zones – in relation to 20 years of developing and advancing sustainable design curriculum, of which I have been an astute student. I re-visited the article this morning (in lieu of attending a hatha yoga class at my local studio) and find myself at peace simply contemplating her evolving position on anthropocentric nature of design, and the role spirituality, animism and deep ecology can play in building moral agency in our practice. With these thoughts, I’m very much looking forward to spending two weeks exploring the wild west coast in our home-boat with my family this summer. Slow practice.
