    Does illustration and graphic design have a role to play in climate change? On September 20th, 2007 at London College of Communication, Eco-Labs open the discussion as part of the 2007 London Design Festival. Greening of Design & Illustration will include speakers representatives from leading UK sustainability design studio, Thomas Matthews and the British Council.

    Eco-Labs explain: As creative communicators we are in a position to help to change attitudes – working towards ultimately changing behavior patterns, policies and systems. Here is a challenge for designers and illustrators: visualize a better low energy future. We used to see visions of the future with jet packs and monorails. Now we need to mainstream a picture of a more human sized, earth connected and energy realistic future.
