“Design devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.”Herbert Simon
A matter of definition
If we lead the definitions of each Design and Sustainability back to their original meaning,
their intersects entails an enormous potential to change the world for the better.
A journey to the unknown…
We are convinced that business as usual is neither viable nor acceptable anymore. We therefore decided to leave our well-known believe systems and explore new shores. This a journey into the unknown and we expect it to be a long, circular and iterative process.
We believe combining Design and Sustainability enfolds an enormously powerful tool to shape a desirable sustainable future for everyone on this planet. We want to represent the change we want to see in the world and dedicate our professional careers to inform, inspire and empower other young aspiring Designers about the chances that lie ahead of them in the upcoming century. We want to help build smart solutions for the problems that already exist or are expected in the near or further distant future. We are convinced that a revolution is always introduced best by introducing new and better ways which make the old ones obsolete.
„There is something going on in design – something powerful. People have realised a simple truth: design is a legitimate way to change the world.“Eve Blossom
Our topics display the action fields we see
for Designers to provoke the desired change in the world.
We are constantly working to develop their content further
and to extend our portfolio.
Design Solutions for Climate Change
The change in climate is measurable and visible. Dealing with current climate crisis scenarios as well as facing potential future threats, this workshop aims to find solutions in all fields.
Design Solutions for Industries
The ongoing pardigm-shift towards sustainability and information society transforms industries of all kinds.
Products and processes need to be rethought and redesigned.
Design Solutions for Infrastructures
All infrastructures are undergoing a profound systemic change.
Whether it’s education, transport, health, or else: we need to prepare for a sustainable transformation in our community.
Design Solutions for Permaculture
As a resilient life-style on the smallest scale,
permaculture serves as a blueprint for replacing the mass agriculture system as well as a framework for poor and isolated regions.
Design Solutions for The Other 90 Percent
The majority of the population deals with fundamental problems on a daily basis. Finding ways to overcome the grotesque disparity between rich and poor is a big part of a sustainable future.
Design Solutions for Humanitarian Crises
In sudden humanitarian crises it takes too long for professional help to arrive.
Solutions for the rescue of victims and the immediate availibility of basic human needs need to be found.
Each of our workshops is mapped to endure five consecutive days during the usual working hours. Along four successive lectures each participant will work on an individual project free of choice.
- inform – “Sustainability is your key to a meaningful expertise in design.”
- empower – “Your creativity has a higher impact than you know.”
- inspire – “Your future will be brighter than you can imagine.”
Other formats or combinations of existing workshops are possible. Just talk to us about your expectations and we can see what we can do.
