Event description

Description

Masterclasses are a slower, in-depth learning experience with a leading global practitioner and a small group of like-minded participants.

The Design for Sustainability masterclass is running for 3 days over 11-13 November. Places are strictly limited to ensure everyone gets a substantial amount of time with the facilitator.


Design for Sustainability: A multi-level innovation framework

İdil Gaziulusoy (FIN/EU)
Assistant Professor of Sustainable Design, Aalto University


In this masterclass you will be introduced to the approaches covered by the multi-level framework of design for sustainability. The multi-level framework structures innovation levels in design for sustainability practice across five levels: material/component, product, product-service system, spatio-social and socio-technical.

You will learn about the different design approaches and associated tools that were developed across these five innovation levels over the evolution of the design for sustainability field including pros and cons of each approach and potential synergies between approaches. These approaches include green design, eco-design, emotionally durable design, design for sustainable behavior, cradle-to-cradle design, biomimicry design, product-service system design for sustainability, design for the base of the pyramid, design for social innovation, systemic design and design for sustainability transitions.

The framework conceptualises the emerging research and practice of design for sustainability transitions as an umbrella approach crosscutting all innovation levels. The masterclass will equip you with an understanding of each approach covered by the multi-level framework and enable you to develop design for sustainability strategies tailored for the specific needs you may have from project to project.

This masterclass is based on the upcoming book Design for Sustainability: A Multi-level Framework from Products to Socio-technical Systems (Routledge). The session at SDNOW will be the first ever delivery of this training program in comprehensive detail.


Recommended for:

The masterclass will be useful for a broad audience including design practitioners and innovation managers: those who’d like to start practicing design for sustainability, those expanding their existing practice on design for sustainability and those who are providing business-to-business and business-to-government consultancy.
