The sphere of influence of design is immense: a large part of the environmental impacts of products, buildings and services is determined in the design process! For many creative professionals, being able to understand and apply sustainable design as a service for a sustainable society is a necessary concern.
BUT HOW?
For this one-day symposium, four outstanding international tools and methods for sustainable design will be presented by their developers, tested for their applicability in workshops with small groups, and discussed.

    The goal is to provide an overview of the methods available on the market for monitoring design processes with regard to ecological and social sustainability. The bandwidth and the application possibilities of the tools presented are vast: One important category of tools encompasses software programs and databases that allow life-cycle assessments, analyses and material reviews. In addition to these “technical” methods for determining the hard facts, there will also be inspiring approaches that encourage new methods with thought-provoking and questioning techniques, from the dematerialization of design to do-it-yourself and service-design strategies.
