Global standards, individual processes

Ecosystems collapse, resources are becoming scarce and there is urgent need for action to counteract these developments. Architecture plays a vital role in shaping our relationship with the world, bearing a significant responsibility but also offering a promising opportunity for change. But where should we focus our attention and which steps could we take now?
This year the Circular Strategies Symposium discusses the universal and the individual. Are there (new) standards that apply globally, or should universal ideas be overcome altogether in favor of local engagement?
