Beyond Green 2009
Good Design was the central them of Beyond Green this year. An event hosted on 9th Nov 2009 athe the AMFI - Amsterdam Fashion Institute of the Arts.
This theme had been chosen due to increasing concern and demand for reduced environmental impact of goods and services.
The event focused upon the role of the designers and companies application of good design thinking. The symposium hosted a range of speakers from David Shah, Dr Kate Fletcher, Mark Liu, Carolyn Strauss and many more. The symposium was accompanied by an exhibition.
Their web platform has documented the event, hosting lots of images, power point presentations and video footage. I think this has been executed really well and is a great was to disseminate the event to a wider audience: sparking future discussions and after thoughts.
