Flower of Sustainability

Blossoms as carriers of different cultural spatial planning of sustainability can also be used for the everyday individual planning needs of each individual, enabling joint plans to be drawn up. Contrary to a vertical list, all aspects of a concept are put into relation so that the underpinning with the 4 superordinate aspects of sustainability can be established in a variety of ways.

Thus, for every conceivable aspect of life a mental diversity can be applied, as it were, to species diversity. The comparison between man and nature can also explain this: Since a tulip can hardly become a butterfly, but that flora cannot live without fauna and man cannot live without both, it is not only a matter of establishing protected areas or protection zones for nature, but also protection and protection zones for the diversity of sustainable culture, better still a growing through of sustainability in all cultural forms of life, as far as they do justice to the ecosystem.

Understanding, experiencing and using this system of thought is based on the "Flowers of Sustainability" method. Blossoms become a personal plan with which each individual can develop or earn a contribution to the culture of sustainability.

Starting with the four basic themes of sustainability, the flowers stand for integral, holistic thinking, which can multiply in many ways like a flower meadow. The overlapping of scents, colours and the benefits of a meadow symbolise the collective sustainable awareness of a group that gets involved with the "Flowers of Sustainability" and thus sees itself as part of the ecosystem or part of a team.

This view makes it clear that there can be no patent remedies for climate change, but that each individual could find his or her future-oriented path to the environment that we share or for which we are responsible. In an exchange on the flowers, similarities can be found. Differentiations can be seen. Topics can be set.

The methodical collective work on blossoms with thematic focuses facilitates this finding possibility.

As with a bouquet of flowers, mental components of a specific possibility of sustainable action can be created together or in a life process.

The description of flowers with different numbers of petals as possible aspects of a culture, which does not necessarily go from left to right or top to bottom, but rather circles around the perfection of a flower, also symbolizes the circling of a core, a goal, a problem, the solution of which cannot be achieved by weighing two polarities, but with the suggestion of an approximate perfection in the interaction of the components.

Friendships between cultural forms and between ecology and culture bind the original word agricultural culture.

Even discrete points in a circle give a different meaning than a list.

The "Flowers of Sustainability" exist as a connection between global thinking and regional action in the context of any regional thought in the global action of each individual and together.

Thinking with feeling and with the spirit, with the soul and with the mind, taking into account the connections of the ecosystem that we have seized, but to which we ourselves also exist, each as a small part of it, from which we outgrow and to which we return.
