Donella Meadows – System Design

Donella Meadows on sustainable system design. When she was talking about her life-plan in a 22 people-many hectare-state of the art commune, it brought us very close, heart to heart.

Her ideas were central to Gregory Bateson’s inspiring « steps to an ecology of mind » book that brought Frank the intellectual underpinning of permaculture design.
