How is the Greenprints approach different?

The Greenprints approach differs fundamentally from many other planning, sustainability and community empowerment processes. In Australian society and other modern, industrialised nations, sustainability and planning processes focus on how to achieve pre-determined human objectives, while maximising financial gain and minimising environmental and social “harm”.  This approach is built on the flawed foundations of a cultural world view that neither respects nor understands the inherent limits or long term regenerative capacity of the living world.  In contrast, Greenprints ensures from the outset, that the fundamental parameters of the living world are the foundation for creating new – and transforming existing – human economic and restoration activities.
