Right now i'm doing research about sustainable development for my comunity, and hope that maybe some of our work and research can inspire or gvrmnt policies.. at least to let them know about the benefit of "SD" for the poeples in the city.. this presentation is exactly the example that i need to disseminating information and knowledge about "SD" to the wider audience... so please tell me how can i get this ppt presentation.. many thanks..

Slide5: 

Let’s simplify

Sustainability is ...: 

Sustainability is ... A set of conditions and trends in a given system that can continue indefinitely

Sustainable Development is ...: 

Sustainable Development is ... A strategic process of continuous change in the direction of sustainability

9 Steps for Sustainable Development: 

9 Steps for Sustainable Development 1. Understand systems in general 2. Understand sustainability in general 3. Distinguish between "development" and "growth” in goal-setting 4. Have adequate information on current developments and trends for the system in question (“Indicators”) 5. Under the dynamics of the specific system in question (“Systems Analysis”) 6. Identify what specific changes to make in the system (“Innovation”) 7. Understand how to make change in that system (“Strategy”) 8. Successfully implement change (“Agreements and Actions”) 9 Continuous monitoring and adaptation (“Strategic Evaluation”) 1 2 4 6 7 5 9 3 8

Level 1: INDICATORS: 

Level 1: INDICATORS Information about critical & long-term trends

The purpose of indicators : 

The purpose of indicators Make system conditions and trends visible so that we can understand them ... ... and respond to them ... ... in time to make a difference.

Indicators tell us …: 

Indicators tell us … How many? How fast? How much? How often? And they answer the question: What’s the trend?

A Few Famous Indicators: 

A Few Famous Indicators The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) The Stock Market Your Temperature When You Get Sick Medal Counts at the Olympic Games

Good Indicators …: 

Good Indicators … Build clarity and accountability Build a sense of common purpose Build relationships Have their strongest impacts over years and decades

Sustainability Indicators …: 

Sustainability Indicators … Cover the Whole Compass Tell us about the Whole System Help guide us in the long term

Anatomy of an Indicator: 

Anatomy of an Indicator

Good indicators are …: 

Good indicators are … Relevant directly connected to the issues you are concerned with Measurable objective or subjective, qualitative or quantitative Reliable you can trust the data

Good indicators are …: 

Good indicators are … Understandable the average person can "get it" Clear in Direction it is obvious which direction is “good” Responsive they react when you make change)

Can we possibly change trends like these?

Indicator Development Process: 

Indicator Development Process Identify “Assets & Concerns” Develop “Candidate Indicators” Refine the Candidates with technical input Select a final set based on criteria that determine priority and meaningfulness Research and document Publish and promote the result

Level 2: SYSTEMS Understanding why things are happening, and where you can make change

System Maps: 

System Maps Start with your top indicator and its strongest linkages Make a “map” showing the cause-and-effect relationships Add other indicators from other compass points Add other indicators/trends you might find that are important elements of this system Report

The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good: 

The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good Indicators: “More information is better than less” Systems: “Some systems thinking is better than none” Sustainability: “Pretty good sustainability is better than systems collapse”

But also means faster learning about how to grow food More food means births start to slow down ... but food production keeps growing ...

Leverage Points: 

Leverage Points Look at the system map Consider this question: Where can you make a powerful change -- a change that will send positive benefits throughout the system? Mark those places with a small “Delta” (triangle shape)

The “Gilman Equation”: A Strategic Change-Planning Tool: 

The “Gilman Equation”: A Strategic Change-Planning Tool Perceived Value of the NEW Idea Perceived Value of the OLD Way Perceived COST of the CHANGE N - O > CC, or ... This assesses the strategic conditions for adoption of a given innovation. See “Believing Cassandra,” Ch. 9, for more information. ACCELERATOR TOOL - AMOEBA Source: Robert Gilman, cited in AtKisson, Believing Cassandra

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation: 

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation 1. Increase the Perceived Value of the New Idea (Marketing and Promotion) Perceived Value of the NEW Idea Perceived Value of the OLD Way Perceived COST of the CHANGE ACCELERATOR TOOL - AMOEBA Source: Robert Gilman, cited in AtKisson, Believing Cassandra

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation: 

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation 2. Decrease the Perceived Value of the Old Way (Protest and Criticism) Perceived Value of the NEW Idea Perceived Value of the OLD Way Perceived COST of the CHANGE ACCELERATOR TOOL - AMOEBA Source: Robert Gilman, cited in AtKisson, Believing Cassandra

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation: 

The Three “Avenues for Action” Derived from the Gilman Equation 3. Decrease the Perceived Cost of Change (Facilitation, Assistance, Subsidies, etc.) Perceived Value of the NEW Idea Perceived Value of the OLD Way Perceived COST of the CHANGE ACCELERATOR TOOL - AMOEBA Source: Robert Gilman, cited in AtKisson, Believing Cassandra

Slide76: 

You can analyze Innovations … .. with the Gilman Equation: N — O > CC N = "The Perceived Value of the New Way” O = "The Perceived Value of the Old Way” CC = "The Perceived Cost of Making the Change" In other words, for change to occur, the new way has to be so much better than the old way that it overcomes the perceived cost of making the switch.

Slide77: 

Three “Avenues for Action”: N — O > CC Increase N: PROMOTE THE NEW Decrease O: DEMOTE THE OLD Decrease CC: FACILITATE THE CHANGE Pursue All 3 Simultaneously!
