Design Solutions
for the Other 90 Percent

The majority of the people on this planet deal with daily struggles we cannot even imagine. Meeting their needs is part of a sustainable future.

90 percent of the people on this planet don’t see their basic human needs met and are left with daily struggles like water supply, food production, shelter, health, security, etc. Since a sustainable society either includes everyone or it is not sustainable, we desperately need solutions that help the poor in a sustainable way.

„Sustainability is the capacity to the basic needs of all, with what we have.“

Gunter Pauli

Just like all N:VISION Workshops, the foundation of this workshop is the idea of bringing Design and Sustainability together in their original sense and discover an inspiring and fruitful future for designers who seek to use their creative skills to make a change. The ongoing paradigm change towards an information society proves that we are doing the right thing at the right time.

Based on this foundation, this particular workshop deals with climate change. It will present the visible and measurable climate effects and the scientific state of the art. Along four consecutive lectures and the guidance and assitstence through an individual project, we will examine different factors forwarding climate change and ultimately come up with strategies, products, processes and services that either balance out current phenomenons or prevent future scenarios from happening.

Duration: 5 days
Participants: 20-25
Open for: Designers of all kinds as well as relatable disciplines
