Welcome to Design Education for Sustainable Future a resource for design professors, students, and practitioners seeking to find new and perhaps better ways to teach/ learn and to become inspired. This site is full of useful tools, diagrams, sample curricula, a blog and more - all geared to support your work.
Form follows world view.
The premise of this book is remarkably simple. It is based on a series of straightforward questions that seek to uncover the context, values and behaviors necessary for effective 21st century design education. Is society moving toward a new sustainable or integral world view, a new set of cultural values that are reshaping the very fabric of human existence? If so, how are such profound shifts in consciousness impacting the design and construction industries? And how can design educators better reflect the zeitgeist of the new century by moving from well-intentioned but lightweight “greening” to the deeper and more potent ideals of sustainability and resilience?
