Event description

Description

Join AIGA SF for the next installment of Compostmodern - our forum devoted to establishing sustainable design solutions. In this event, we explore the complex problems behind recycling both as consumers and designers. While once thought of as a go-to sustainability solution, the complexities in recycling processes and drastic changes in global demands have demanded designers reconsider how products are made, used and disposed of. Join Logan Evasco from Design It Forward, Ian Montgomery from Guacamole Airplane, and Felisia Castaneda from Recology SF for a discussion moderated by Rachel Beth Egenhoefer from USF on the problems and potential solutions designers face designing for recyclability.

Moderator:

Rachel Beth Egenhoefer, Associate Professor of Design and Chair of the Department of Art + Architecture at the University of San Francisco. She teaches courses on Systems Thinking for Sustainable Design, Design Activism Community Engaged Learning and others. She is the editor of the Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design.
