Abstract: The chapter argues that dealing with environmental sustainability requires a systemic, yet open-ended approach to human–environment interaction. It discusses a cognitive strategy for capturing environmental issues as emergent and systemic features of this interaction. With three heuristic variations, the chapter illustrates the benefits of looking systematically out- and upwards from the initial object of interest. Each heuristic provides an orientation framework for making connections amongst a range and variety of factors in order to create a comprehensive and purposeful understanding of environmental issues.
