85504 Design Futures: Sustainable Lifestyles

This subject examines how design can influence people to live and work more sustainably. Students investigate the many varied historical and international forces that have led modern consumer societies to evolve unsustainably and utilise resources inequitably. By engaging with theory and practice students gain an understanding of the forces that continue to prevent societies from becoming more sustainable. Through this subject students develop proposals for design-led attitudinal and behaviour change toward more sustainable ways of living and working.
