Sustainability seems to be the word of the day. I’d been meaning to talk about the topic for a while now but had been waiting for the right guest to bring on the show. Recently I came across David Scott, from CONTENT, and he seemed to be the perfect guy to introduce this topic to me and my audience. David works closely with firms that take pride in working sustainability and renewable energy into their designs and projects, and he is truly passionate about the topic.
I had a fascinating conversation with David about this topic and at times we got so taken by it that we seemed to go off on philosophical tangents. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that sustainability is indeed a philosophy. No conversation about it could honestly stay away from references to personal feelings, subjective insights, and some of the ultimate questions that have always troubled the human mind.
Take a listen and leave a comment below – I would absolutely love your input!
