Wellington: DA Conversations — Spring 2019

Design Assembly is delighted to present our DA Spring Conversations 2019 series taking place in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in September.

Planet centric design – What is the role and responsibility of the designer?

Have you ever wondered how your job as a designer impacts our planet? Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint and create something that isn’t just designed beautifully but is beautiful by design? How can we design to consider the lifecycle of our work and integrate it into our design process?

Join us for a panel discussion where we’ll define planet-centric design, discuss the challenges of recycling, and consider the role and the responsibility of the designer.
