Leveraging Design for Sustainability
Design is a powerful problem solving tool that can be used to inform, influence, and change behavior. Using a holistic approach to sustainable design, allows us to see design beyond just the visual, to also include user experience, behavior and habit, systems and structures. Systems thinking methodology allows practitioners to identity leverage points for intervention that can create a greater impact. Mindful design strategy paired with systems thinking uses the power of design for sustainability and social change.
