Join the Future Now: Sustainist Design!

The new era of ‘Sustainism’ has already begun; now we have to design for it. Sustainism means creating a new culture where sustainable life connects with social media, the local existence and collective creativity. Sustainist design’ is the key to the future, driven by qualities such as sharing, connectedness, locality and co-creation as well as sustainability. Michiel Schwarz (cocreator of the Sustainism Manifesto) takes you on a sweeping tour of the emerging Sustainist culture, opening with a discussion of what it implies for creative practice. This ‘food for thought’ provides the kick-off for a design workshop led by Diana Krabbendam (The Beach), where you explore together what ‘Sustainist design’ might look like.
