WHAT IS A SOCIAL
DESIGNER?

Within the design world social design is sometimes defined as a design process that contributes to improving human well-being and livelihood. ... Social design thinking within the design world joins developing human and social capital with new products and processes that are profitable.

WHAT IS
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN?

Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and the health and comfort of building occupants, thereby improving building performance. The basic objectives of sustainability are to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste, and create healthy, productive environments.

“You leave this beautiful place today with “creative survival skills” What you will need to keep a steady eye on is your engagement with humanity and the earth that gives us life.”
