Sustainability in 7: Series Recap

Sustainability in 7: Series Recap: "

90-x-90.jpg The Designers Accord Sustainability in 7 video series delivers a daily dose of design inspiration by today's leading sustainability experts. Join in the conversation as they share 7 things every designer should consider when integrating sustainability into design practice.

It's been an incredible month of sharing lessons in sustainability with thoughtful (and thought-provoking) videos from 17 of today's most respected sustainability experts. We learned that 'by design' starts with value thinking from William McDonough, the realities of sustainable business from Hunter Lovins and Lisa Gansky, that diversity creates resilience from Nathan Shedroff and that each of us should look to nature for design solutions from Janine Benyus. Each of our 17 presenters gave us a unique view on directions in sustainable design and what it means for makers, thinkers, consumers and producers today.

The Designers Accord is a global coalition of designers, educators, and business leaders working together to create positive environmental and social impact. Adopters of the Designers Accord commit to five guidelines that provide collective and individual ways to integrate sustainability into design. The Designers Accord provides a participatory platform with online and offline manifestations so that members have access to a community of peers who share methodologies, resources, and experiences around environmental and social issues in design.
