As a designer, design manager and design educator I believe that I can play a role in encouraging sustainability and social corporate responsibility.
To do so, I have created a 'design thinking camp' focused on 'cause based design'.
This 'camp' meets twice monthly is open to anybody in the Toronto area who would like to participate.
Our goal is to host a summit on earth day, April 22 2008 by the name of "spread the word".
This will be a summit (participation by the attendees prior and during the event make it a summit not a conference) is designed to celebrate those who are already doing this work, to encourage others to take up the mantle and to initiate the conversation within the design community about how the message can be taken to the world at large.
We will post some of our research here to share with the Design21 Network.
