The Integral Sustainovation® model is a framework and a practice that I first developed in 2009 and then further refined during my post-doctoral research in order to help organizations and communities innovate toward Sustainability Stewardship. The model represents a systemic innovation approach that includes addressing the personal, cultural, environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability. The practice includes shaping the interior landscape of individuals and groups to orient themselves toward sustainable futures. Below listed are examples of collaborative Integral Sustainovation® workshops, lasting from one to three days during which participants walked around the entire sustainovation wheel and developed a concrete roadmap for collaborative action in support of their collective vision.
