Sustainable Design by World Design Embassies
World Design Embassies connect designers with companies and stakeholders to look at the challenges we face as a society in a quickly changing world, and the role design can play. In this episode: how has sustainable design evolved, and how can we play our part in its future?
The curators of the Embassy for Sustainable Design – Leonne Cuppen (designer and owner of Yksi Connect) and Teun van Wetten (design director at VanBerlo) – discuss sustainable design as a circular process, and the importance of collaboration to create change.
Listen to our other episodes on the Embassies of Health, Water, Circular & Biobased Building, Mobility and Safety. We speak to both curators and practitioners about the challenges they face, and the solutions they envision for future societies. Climate change, urbanisation, the increasing use of technology in our lives… where is it all leading, and how can we shape our society in a positive, meaningful way?
Come join us at Dutch Design Week, when the Embassies take on a physical form – in exhibitions, lectures, discussions and workshops – so that ideas, expertise and insight can be shared, with experts and the public. 19-27 October, 2019 in Eindhoven.
