Day One Morning

Embedding Sustainable Thinking into the Design Process


Join Practical Action to explore methods of embedding sustainable thinking at every stage of the design process – both in terms of design generation and problem solving /evaluation.


This session will support your department’s 5 to 7-year curriculum planning and provide students with increased confidence to address sustainability within their project work and help to answer exam questions on the topic.

By looking at the global context of fast fashion and the Sustainable Development Goal - Responsible Consumption and Production – we will provide a “toolkit” for practical activities to use back in the classroom.


Presented by:Bren Hellier and Heidi Ambrose-Brown - Practical Action and D&T Association
