sustainability has more than one dimension

spatially and life-style related

På svenska

This diagram shows the differences in sustainability attained by movements in the two dimensions dicussed:

  1. The ruralisation change, which represents a mmovement in two dimensions simultaneously, both spatially and in life-style.
    This change might increase sustainability (lighter on the diagram).
  2. The urban sprawl, which represent a change in the spatial distriburion of otherwise urbanized people.
    This might even decrease sustainability compared to its earlier state.
    Today, most people have an urbanized life-style, even if they live in the most remote regions.
