Sustainability Now! A Hands-on Workshop On Sustainability Practice for Today’s Designers

Over 80-percent of today’s corporations do some sort of sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reporting. All of the United States’ trading partners are signatories to the Paris Climate Agreement, with laws, regulations, and initiatives in those countries changing to meet the Paris Climate goals. Across the board, consumers are looking more critically at the goods they buy, the services they use, and the companies behind them. Sustainability is no longer a nice thing to do for the earth, but a critical part of a business’ strategic positioning strategy. Designers who understand sustainability principles and strategies will be better positioned to serve their
client’s needs. In this workshop, you’ll have a hands-on opportunity to explore a sampling of the tools, systems, and strategies today’s sustainability practitioners use to create highly effective, innovative and forward-looking design solutions. This session is suitable for all campers.
