Sustainable futures at Design Museum

Sustainability is everywhere these days and in particular at the Design Museum London from the 31 March till the 05 September

"From the world’s first carbon neutral city to a refrigerator which doubles as an aquarium, this exhibition explores a range of products, concepts and projects that address issues of sustainability in their design. Through prototypes, samples, products and film, you can find out more about your impact on the world and how to change it.

Presented around five themes: Cities, Energy and Economics, Food, Materiality and Creative Citizens, this overview shows the changing role of the designer and reveals how design can make a difference.

To explore some of the themes in the exhibition the museum is hosting a series of discussions, seminars and professional conferences on sustinable design. Please sign up to receive further information by email."
