FSC Social: Circular Design Thinking for Good

  • The Future Strategy Club Unit 501B, Peckham Levels LONDON United Kingdom (map)

The Event

We're on a deadline to save our planet and we've all got our part to play. The traditional design model of take, make and dispose needs to shuffle off, and as creatives, it's our responsibility when designing to eliminate the negative environmental impact of our products and services through sensitive design.

Circular Design principles look at designing products & services that no longer have a life cycle with a beginning, middle and end. The linear service or product journey is now circular, with the different phases, processes or interactions being part of closed loops and materials that are no longer in use going back into the cycle. 

Seems simple enough, but what does it look like in real life? Join us to discuss circular design methodologies that crate products that last forever followed by a fireside sofa interview that takes these principles and places them in context through completed projects and personal experiences.
