Systems Thinking for Sustainability: Beyond Stuff Towards Resiliency
Rachel Egenhoefer, February 3, 2021

The climate crisis has presented wicked problems around the world. While some designers attempt to create new “eco-products” and “green designs” to minimize impact, the real issues designers need to tackle is systematic change to create cultures of resilience and regeneration. This talk presents sustainable design from an intersectional problem solving perspective and how you can use systems thinking to create impactful solutions.
