Be accountable – understand the impact of your actions

So much stuff is made at the expense of something, someone, or somewhere else—distant externalities deliberately kept apart from what we do, so we lose sight of them. To be accountable means taking responsibility: for the work itself and the workforce; for the places and structures you design; for the resources being extracted; for the ecologies you are part of. It means acting with ethics; working in intersectional ways; acknowledging and cooperating with others. Most of all it demands always tracing the impact of your work in relation to planetary boundaries.
