Watch the WDE Talk: How can we redesign our relationship with plastic?
In the WDE Talk live from Pakhuis de Zwijger on 20 January, the Embassy of Rethinking Plastic was central. How can we redesign our relationship with plastic? We now realise the urgency of plastic as an environmental problem, but as a material, it also has its advantages. It is not black and white. A world without plastic is hardly conceivable, so we have to learn to deal with it in a different way. Designers play a crucial role in this transition. In this WDE Talk, together with Embassy curator Leonne Cuppen, Embassy partners Lia Voermans (Brightlands Chemelot Campus) and Jan Pels (TNO) and designers Jessica den Hartog and Tjeerd Veenhoven, we look back on Dutch Design Week 2021. What are the new insights? And how can they cooperate and strengthen each other in tackling this social issue?
