I am Sai Dharani from India. I have been involved with sustainable and social development projects as a mentor, product development and social impact strategist. I am also a dreamer of a humanitarian world where each of us see People and Planet as one and act in tandem towards making this world a better place.
Nature has bestowed us with precious resources for a good life. On one side we are accomplishing technological advancements but on the other side we are struggling to lead a decent and quality life with conflicts, natural disasters, inequality, lack of pure air, water, healthy food, good education and proper health and many more concerns.
We should change this;
Each one of us can turn around the situation by safeguarding the planet for our and future generations.
Towards the same, my paper titled SENSE (Systemic Enquiry Norm for Sustainable Equity) - A systemic decision centric action-framework and methodology, would act as an enabler for the whole-of-society (Individuals, Corporates/Institutions, Governance) to take the right decision/s and steer sustainable action/s for our sustainable future.
This paper is selected for presentation at the 7th ICSD (International Conference for Sustainable Develoment) at Columbia University, New York on Sept 24-25,2019 for the theme “Good Practice: Models, Partnerships, and Capacity Building for the SDGs,” held by Earth Institute, Columbia University and SDSN (Sustainable Development Solutions Network for United Nations).
Attending the conference and presenting among sustainability leaders, practitioners, students, researchers will allow to gain the required thrust with the right partnerships for implementation.
SENSE vision of sustainable growth and prime criteria being for the larger good (Planet Species and resources)- is a one-page action-summary that allowsto design, plan, monitor, evaluate and map the chosen solution/s for SD (Sustainable Development) in conformity to the Six Sustainability Dimensions (environmental, economic, social, institutional (governance), cultural and time (ethical) /5Ps (people, planet, peace, prosperity and partnership). Based on Systems Thinking it seeks to reinforce and balance processes for sustainability transition at every outset.
Below is the step-by step process of how SENSE allows to focus on the right set of parameters to perform sustainable actions towards protection and enhancement of Sustainable Equity or Larger Good – Planet species and resources.
It’s imperative that we act now to lead and have the best life always - A sustainable future.
SENSE allows us to take those right decisions and implement them effectively.
My presentation spot at the conference is confirmed. I need your invaluable support for covering the costs to make it to the ICSD conference.
