Welcome to Integrated Sustainability

“We think that we’re in the artifact business, but we’re not; we’re in the consequence business.”SVADCA

– Allan Chochinov

 

Welcome to Integrated Sustainability One. The first of the three part mini-course series, challenges first year Products of Design students to make socio-environmental consequences personal to their emerging design practice. Students will explore global ecological challenges then model their own influence on these issues through quantitative research, applications and tools. By further elucidating individual and class values and worldviews, students will uncover motivations, barriers and incentives for creating positive sustainable impact, in order to develop both personal and department-wide ethics for sustainability.
