Iain Patton – Advisor – The Sustainable Methods institute is an international, environmental, health, economic and societal think tank, institution of higher education, and research network which aims to build a education, research and outreach institute that encompasses all fields of sustainable research. This institute will to a large degree remain virtual, that is, online to keep efficiency up and costs down. SMI will provide all the resources that a research institute provides. It works towards a unified goal of sustainability by considering all aspects of sustainability holistically for all the projects under our guidance.
