The industrialized countries consume so many resources that developing countries will take every chance to achieve a similar level of prosperity. Why do we fail to design reasonable production and consumption patterns that would put a stop to the overexploitation of nature? How can we at least respect the biophysical boundaries of economic activity?

Fifty years ago, there were visions for change, but technologically they couldn’t be realized. Today we have the expertise, but lack the far-sighted design and the political will. A fundamental redefinition of the design of our future living environments must accompany the energy transition. As agents of this transition, can designers positively influence the product and consumer culture in the direction of social and ecological sustainability? At which interfaces must a change in thinking take place?
