Sustainabilitism: Key Concepts
Principles of Sustainabilitism
1) Non-collapsibility: Sustainable practices minimize adverse ripple effects in the system. Consequently, such practices prevent disrupting other components of the system, the latter of which could lead to the breakdown of the system as a whole.
2) Utility: Sustainable practices promote global long-term well-being --- An effect which might not be immediately apparent in the beginning phases of the implementation.
3) Efficiency: Sustainable practices avoid unnecessary complexities. They tend to be fundamentally more efficient, without taking shortcuts that would otherwise jeopardize their utility.
