Design brings a human-centered approach to change and development – just what we need to make sustainable solutions a part of our everyday lives. Based on an Aalto University Design Factory study of more than 100 organizations, Design+Sustainability takes stock of what harnessing design to tackle sustainability looks like in practice today.
The exhibition offers insights and examples of how design can advance sustainability, ranging from manufacturing to retail and consumer goods to public services. Explore bite-sized insights on what are the most common issues and tactics tackled in sustainability through design, and get inspired by examples of improving environmental, social and economical sustainability. The exhibition at Glasshouse has been constructed using UPM’s biobased material solutions, and it is complemented by an online report available at https://designfactory.aalto.fi/designsustainability.
