An infinite network of cause-effect relationships, where each element influences others: cars, telephones, food, schools, tourism, banks. The goal is to re-design processes, products and services taking into account the future impacts. It is no longer possible to imagine citizens (and designers) who do not consider sustainability as a way to go through.
Today, IED is committed to setting up a training model where sustainability is embedded in the whole process, from research to distribution. This means working in a structured way teaching future designers how to develop their own responsible vision.
