As unprecedented challenges arise for our planet and humanity, Design is imperative in finding solutions that enable us humans to co-exist in harmony with nature and the biosphere.
We must collectively move from a culture of "creating in the absence of limits" to "creating in a limited world".
We have reached a moment in human history where we must design for sustainability and the impact on society. If we want to shift individual and collective behavior toward sustainability, we first need to engage people with compelling reasons to do so — with meaningful, beautiful, emotional experiences.
It is the purpose of this initiative. We craft the roadmap for a new materialism and a new way of life, in a respectful and joyous relationship with the material world.
5 challenges are directly affecting our quest for a more sustainable future.
Continually growing complexity, the need for sustainability, ubiquity, Design & Science necessity and Workforce of the future.
Experiential design is the new focus as we think of users first—about the human, the citizens, the patients.
We need to be able to work with expertise, with knowledge, with teams that may be around the globe, in a virtual design space.
How do we engage with product life management, with the full holistic experience from sourcing to use, all the way to destruction?
Science and design are the necessary partners to create advantages and deliver results that make life better.
If we have a design space for collaboration, it has to be an inclusive place, easily accessible, allowing the convergence of designers, scientists, engineers, researchers, public services, and people/citizens.
Designers are experts in imagining new narratives and possible futures, disrupting and re-arranging systems, and, in the process, improving life. They act at the heart of human communities, fostering regenerative and participative approaches.
Design engages people, promotes individual actions and helps to represent collective ones. Ultimately, design is the art of the possible. It fosters systemic change.In this context, new sustainable design practices are emerging and others will take shape.
