Event description

Description

The discussion will be lead by Georgina Lewis of www.designapplied.net and the panelists are:

Jo Szczepanska – Head of Co-design at Today
Lina Patel – Facilitator & Collaboration Designer

Darren Sutton – founder The Common Purpose Collective.

The aim of this panel discussion is to strengthen the role of design practitioners as influencers of sustainable strategy across projects and disciplines. Sustainability is about people, profit and the planet. Each
organisation can contribute to sustainability, has unique limitations an
d opportunities and defines impact from their point of view.

We will be discussing sustainability within organisations. Specifically the Service Design interventions and structures that support the important work of making sustainability goals and measures achievable.

The importance of co-design processes that allow stakeholders to have visibility and ownership over their field of influence, will be touched on. Whether that be interrogating their supply chains or addressing policy that changes where they buy stuff from.

We’ll also be delving into the self reflective work that as practitioners and business leaders we are required to do in order to address sustainability. Our personal values of sustainability might not always align with how we run our projects at work. Furthermore there are tension points between what is right snd what is possible around sustainability.

We will speak on the responsibility of organisations to take ownership of promoting sustainability within their own projects, communities and to their own people. Impact has to be defined and measured as an important business goal to be taken seriously as a proof point for organisations.
