DA Workshop | Design 4 Conservation

Design for Conservation (D4C) is a methodology that enables participative problem-solving for environmental conservation and sustainability challenges. This toolkit enables participants to address complex challenges in a creative, non-linear way, taking into consideration multiple stakeholder points of view - human and nonhuman - and the complex interactions between emotional, spiritual, and scientific approaches. The methodology balances work and play, fostering trust among participants, and creating a safe space for multiple world views to co-exist.

DA Webinar | Under the Hood | AI

You are invited to join us online as two designers walk us through how a project worked. Each designer will share the brief, how they approached it, talk us through that internal feedback loop – This is too hard! It’s not working! Why did I decide to be a designer?! – and out to the other side to client love and project success. All of these insights in a quick conversational talk and additional time for live Q&A.
