My Impact on the Planet

We are not separate from our environment, we depend on it every day to sustain our lives. This workshop series is focused on how our environment can become more sustainable with our every creative decision. We as individuals, groups, and local communities can create a better world by understanding the founding principles of sustainable design and how they can impact our creative process and foster a more vibrant and resilient world for all of us to live in.

Whether you are new to sustainable design or consider yourself an eco-warrior these sessions will help you unlock the potential of your projects.

Session Topics:

Intro to Impact Design: September 24, 2020

What is impact design? Why is thinking this way a necessary conversation about how and why we create? How do we change our processes to be more socially and environmentally sustainable? Does changing the way we think change the world?

Developing Shared Language-Sustainability: November 5, 2020

Defining the same words the same way is the first step to creating a shared vision for social change. Often times our best intentions fail because we simply don’t see the same ideas the same way.

Intro to Sustainable Design

What makes a design sustainable and how can we implement the practice of sustainability into everything we create? This session is designed to be an overview into the principles and practices of sustainable design for anyone new to this area of design. Learn the lingo, principles, and ethics of designing sustainably.

Envisioning Sustainable Impact

How do we get from project idea to sustainable output? What questions do we need to ask? What frameworks help to clarify our sustainability goals? How do we make the thought process of sustainability accessible to our everyday lives and decisions?

Connecting Social & Environmental Responsibility

Sustainable design gets lost in translation when we don’t connect it to the needs of people. This session is designed to help us understand how social responsibility and environmental sustainability are connected. This relationship is essential to the understanding and resiliency of both design disciplines.

Mapping Your Project (private consulting sessions)

Do you have a project you’d like step by step guidance with? The thought process behind sustainable design takes a bit of time to research and build clarity. These sessions are designed to help with living projects seeking sustainable outcomes. With your problem statement or project in hand we’ll work out the kinks together until we’ve created a story worth telling.
