— Dr. Sanjeev Singh
Understanding the Principles and Response Strategies for Environment Sustainability at the Chandigarh College of Architecture today. Beginning with the history of the origin of ‘Environmentalism’ he focused on the fact that it is important to acknowledge the effects of climate change and that it is a human induced phenomenon. After briefly explaining the concept of carbon footprint, the architect emphasised that it is important for environment to be seen as an umbrella of equity and economy. This led to the discussion on key principles and enablers of sustainability transitions. After elaborating on various response strategies that can be utilised to achieve sustainable use of our resources, he concluded by quoting Buckminster Fuller, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. The best way to predict the future is to design it.”
