The Sustainability in Design: Now! conference is a platform for sharing the latest knowledge and experiences in product, service and system design, to promote sustainable systems thinking in design education, research and practice communities. The conference approach is to look at various stakeholders in this arena - designers, design educators and design researchers - as a unique learning community. The objective is the creation of a new ethos, within such a community, enabling all possible synergies and fruitful processes of knowledge and know-how osmosis and cross-fertilisation.
This conference is promoted and organized as the conclusive event of the LeNS - Learning Network on Sustainability - project, funded by EU under the Asia-link program, that aims at the development and diffusion of design for sustainability in design institutions.
There is no conference fee and proceedings will be published (with ISBN).
