DESIGN GREEN NOW West Coast Tour NOW open for registration.

Design Green Now is a series of FREE panel discussions exploring the integration of innovative tools in the greening of consumer products. These sessions will inspire and empower emerging designers to build a sustainable future NOW!

Programs

Panelists include rock star designers from top consultancies like Frog, Smart Design and Fuse Project along side leading green producers like the sportswear company Nau. They will share their current green projects, the challenges they face and the tools they use for successful sustainable design. The discussions will highlight sustainable materials, product life cycles and social impact.

Documentation of the panels will become an online catalog of the latest dialog in green design. Videos will be hosted here after the panels! Check back for daily updates!
