Thirty more sustainability diagrams

Posted on March 24, 2010


I’m working towards structuring the collection into a book (watch this space).    I’ve almost got a framework sorted out, so this lot is filling some holes.

189 “Bretherton diagram” (based on a concept of Francis Bretherton) highlighting some of the linkages between social systems, biogeochemical systems, and the physical climate system.  (NCAR)

190 Priorities and issues (Gloustershire)

191 Capitalist system (IWW poster, see also)

192 Cause and effect diagram (Fishbone or Ishikawa diagram, instructions).  This from Stephen Hinton.

193 Road depends on where you start (Jo Johnston)

194 Realms (Baudot via Ford)

195  Global footprint versus Human Development Index (WWF via Oildrum)

196 Sequence of  world systems 1949, 2007,  2030, 2050  (Charles Hall via Oildrum)

197  Node diagram (Isaksson and  Steimle, img)

198 Human life project (young child version, also young adult and adult).  (Jennifer Ranville, overview)

199  Cycles in Sustainable Economy (Carana).

200 Creating sustainable value framework (Hart and Milstein via Brinq)

201 360 model   (Hollingworth)

202 Zoom zoom to make the tree grow  (Mazda)

Mazda is working towards a sustainable future that brings continued happiness and excitement to people in a global society, by developing vehicles that never fail to excite, visually capture the customer’s heart, and provide a fun driving experience that keeps bringing them back to Mazda.

203 Diagram of Everything Living (Gurdjieff see also Ray of Creation)

204 Four capitals (on a tree) University of Vermont Gund Institute for Ecological Economics

205 Pattern Dynamics (Tim Winton)

Through his work as a sustainability educator Tim recognised the need for a common ‘language’ in sustainability. PatternDynamics is a set of symbols representing the organizing principles of the natural world.

206 First Nations Ecology (First Nations Development Institute – can’t find original, this via)

207 Mind map (many variants, this  “Intention to sustain”  Touchedbyamoose, see also)

208 Four Dimensions of intelligence (TLC Solutions)

The four dimensions are based on the concept of dimensions of space and time, where the use of predominantly one dimension leads to a one-dimensional form of leadership.  The more we are able to utilise additional dimensions, the greater depth we develop and implement as leaders. The fourth dimension is absolutely critical – the dimension of time.  Most people can be a great leader at a single point in time, but what makes a great leader over time, sustainably, is the fourth dimension.

209 Self organising success (Mike Bell, Wisdom Meme)

All self-organising systems rely on the interconnectedness of eight design elements (or energies) for their survival and growth:

210 Child rights ecology model (ex UN Convention Rights of the Child, David Ortiz via Open University).

211 Steps to Ecology of Mind (Gregory Bateson via Poe)

212 Spaceship

Spaceship Earth was so extraordinarily well invented and designed that to our knowledge humans have been on board it for two million years not even knowing that they were on board a ship

there are no passengers on Spaceship Earth Fuller (1965 in Vallero 2005. 367)

(see also representations of cabin ecology research)

213 Permatopia (Mark Robinowitz)

214 Industrial Bubble (Geoff Brown)

215 Five Earths of the Bible (Lamb and Lion Minstries)

The first earth was the one created in the beginning (Genesis 1:1). It was perfect in every respect (Genesis 1:31). But because of Man’s sin, God placed a curse upon the earth (Genesis 3: 17-19).

The fourth earth — the millennial earth — will be very different from the present earth. The earthquakes that will produce it will be the most severe in history. Most important, the curse will be partially lifted, making it possible for Man to be reconciled to nature and for nature to be reconciled to itself. The wolf will dwell with the lamb because the wolf will no longer be carnivorous. The nursing child will play with the cobra because the cobra will no longer be poisonous (Isaiah 11:8).

But Satan’s last revolt at the end of the Millennium will leave the earth polluted and devastated (Revelation 20:7-9). Thus, at the end of the Lord’s reign, God will take the Redeemed off the earth, place them in the New Jerusalem, and then cleanse the earth with fire (2 Peter 3:10-13).
