Design, Sustainability and Future Circular Business Models?

Research profile seminar

It is urgent to change both industrial and consumer behavior if we want to achieve sustainable goals. Cars, fashion and interior belong to those industries whose business models are built on constant desires for new products ¿ and new designs.

While design has contributed to the model of obsolescence and the linear business model, can design instead reverse and contribute to the model of longevity and circular business models? With examples from these industries and regions a panel with practitioners and researchers discusses these difficult questions.

The seminar is free of charge, but you need to register, not later than 30 April to info@adasweden.se
