Designers prescribe the use of our limited materials resources with every products that emerge from their work. With an informed approach to design, based on a sound knowledge of materials from their origins to their disposal and contexts of use, a designer can maximise the positive impact of their designing on local and global communities. Students will develop an understanding of the central importance of design in developing a more sustainable world on both production and consumption sides. They will reflect critically on their role as both designers and end-users and will exercise their creative intuition to confidently generate and present designs for sustainability. The aim of this sub-major is to enhance students’ ecological literacy and perception of sustainability as a creative opportunity.
