Ethics conference

Conference that sounded cool… but we missed it…

“Sustainable development,the environment, a trade balance between the North and South, an inherent respect for each person, the smoothing out of existing inequalities. The designer as a professional as well as inventor has a lot of pertinent and efficient remarks to make concerning these burning questions.  “ETHICS : Design, Ethics and Humanism” will take stock of existing research as well as the experience accumulated and results achieved in various design fields.

 Six sub themes are planned to cover a wide range of concerns:
> Eco design and sustainable development
> Design for All and inclusive conception
> Supportive economy and fair trade
> De- industrialisation, design and employment
> Companies and business ethics
> Ethics and the teaching of design”

Design for Social Need

In response to mounting pressures on our communities and in light of the vast potential that we as designers share, a handful designers have formed Design for Social Need (DSN). Our mission is to bring together designers of all types with local social service organizations on volunteer design projects that span from research to development, from planning to implementation.

About the website

The site is divided into two main sections: (1) continuously updated listing of relevant stories, examples, people and going-ons and (2) listing of current projects both underway and under consideration.
