The Sustainable Design Weeks

 

During these 2 weeks we will host multiple events all on the topic of sustainable design! Sustainability is becoming an ever more important topic. Students are closely related to this topic and play an important role in the future of sustainability. They need to be aware that sustainability will be a crucial factor and they need to be informed about this topic. Sustainability is also important in design and is taken into consideration more frequently nowadays. A lot of companies are already working on sustainability and a cooperation between students and companies can help to improve the future of sustainable design.
