There was a time when sustainability in design still had something of a novelty to it. Today, sustainable design is part of our universal language - it’s rare that a firm or designer highlights “sustainable” or “green” projects anymore – sustainable design is now expected by our clients and should be part of our best practices.
This session will explore the concept of sustainable design, the Three E’s of Sustainability and ways to communicate and educate your clients. You’ll discover how to help clients create a healthy, functional living space to fit their needs.
The future of true sustainability is about fostering a sustainable way of living to guarantee the health of environment for future generations. By internalizing this mission and selecting products responsibly, we can design to promote and enhance lifestyles and protect the environment at the same time.
At the end of this session you will:
- Identify what the concept of sustainable design is and why it is pertinent to our times.
- Apply the Three E’s of Sustainability in a practical, inspirational, and beautiful manner to your projects.
- Educate and explain to your clients how to create a healthy, functional living space that best fits their needs.
- Modify and adapt practices that will help create a sustainably minded business.
