Words are our first tools for making sense of the world. 'A Sustainist Lexicon' presents seven words for a changing time. In this timely exploration of our cities, heritage, civic initiatives, urbanism and the future, Michiel Schwarz, co- creator of the Sustainism manifesto, charts how a new ethos and praxis is emerging in the ‘design’ of our living environment. This concise lexicon explores the changing cultural landscape through seven entries: Placemaking, Connectedness, Local, Commons, Circularity, Proportionality, and Co-Design.
