Sustainable Design Workshop: Is it green?
Friday, January 31, 2014 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Designing with meaning is hardly passé. Join us as we investigate approaches to understanding sustainable design in business, cities, product development and environments through an interactive case study.
In this free, hour-long workshop, we'll explore two methodologies for this work: a holistic perspective and a conventional, material-based focus. Participants will come to their own conclusions about how to rate a product in terms of its sustainability.
This is event is co-hosted by Impact Hub Berkeley and Climate Earth. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
