We're on week three of the Design for Social Change course and we started the class with a brief discussion about "sustainability" as it relates to our design considerations. As you can see from the images above, the interpretations are varied (a visual reminder of how broad and complex this can be!).
Links that were presented in class (but in no way exhaust the topic):
Cradle to Cradle
Designer's Atlas of Sustainability
Bonus material (or stuff we didn't have time to cover):
Story of Stuff
The Living Principles
The Natural Step
The Power of Time Off
We're at the halfway point of this intensive course and I am looking forward to seeing the concepts that will emerge from the research process!
