Design and Sustainability

In the publication of the “German Sustainability Strategy”, the Federal Government has declared sustainability as the central challenge of the beginning of the 21st century. Public voices are also growing louder for a transformation towards a more sustainable society. The education sector plays a significant role here. Designers shape many areas of life through their design and can influence social transformation processes across media. The lecture sheds light on the challenges posed by the idea of sustainability and attempts to show solutions that can become effective in design. A central concept here is Transition Design. (link)
