Sustainability by Design: Innovation for a Circular Economy

Join us for a discussion on the role of designers in actively shaping the path towards a more equitable planet. Alongside design experts from the Bay Area and Switzerland, we explore the question of social responsibility around consumer goods - and how design can incentivize people to live and act more sustainably in today’s societies. The event will shine light on how design can incite social change by including ethical considerations into the practice. 

As part of our Design Accelerator program with Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and Design Preis Schweiz, swissnex San Francisco will host six design studios from Switzerland who will present innovative products and ideas in breakout sessions. These Swiss studios have been selected for our Swiss Design Accelerator arranged through an open call launched last September for a pilot program initiated between Pro Helvetia, swissnex San Francisco and Design Preis Schweiz.
