  • To think of new socio-ecological relationship (common, cooperative, social business, etc.).
  • Understand that access to resource and flows means relation of power, monopoly, etc. We have to enhance the open access to resource and allow for reuse.
  • To have less dependence to centralize system (costly) and rely more to decentralize solution involving the engagement of community and citizens.
  • Always try to find the potential re-use of waste upstream. Sorting of activity is replaced by sorting of waste.  Re-use, recycle or process.
  • To think any context or design elements in term of ecological footprint.
