About this Unit
Societies today face up to considerable challenges around the sustainable use of human and physical resources. According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (UNSDGs) there are certainly rewards for professions that carefully consider current, evolving and future systems with a view of providing an integrated response to the sustainable use of resources in local, city-based or regional built environments. This unit requires students to develop an evidence-based sustainable design proposal through the evaluation of value streams, circular economy impacts, and self-prioritised UNSDGs targets with a view to commercialise. Students will develop a Futures Strategy report on their design challenge informed by industry or community based observations.
