"Sustainability and sustainable development tend to be used interchangeably, whereas they represent distinct approaches. Sustainable development is not simply about the environment since it incorporates other indicators of human welfare such as incomes and their distribution, jobs, health, housing, crime levels and so on. Conversely, ‘sustainability’ implies a much stronger commitment to the environment above other factors, principally economic growth."
Jacobs and Scott (1992)
I know its a little bit tedious, but sometimes we all need a little reminding. Note to self:
Remind the team that we have chosen a ‘sustainabiliy’ theme for our current project
Remind Dave and Mr B over the next few weeks when they make more policy proposals.
Great introduction to the relationship between planning and food. I used this in conjunction with the new London plan in a recent essay and its really useful. At the moment food and spatial planning is not really built into my course, but its discussed in terms of sustainability, urban design and the contribution of planning to other fields.
Its inspired me enough to get in touch with Sustain and I’m currently doing some research on some case studies to update this document…wooo-ooo!!
