Fellow students of the Umeå Institute of Design (UID) started the UID climate group in January 2019. I joined when I came to UID in September 2019.
We see that there is a lot of opportunity in industrial design to create more sustainable products and practises. Creating change, partly starts at where we recieve our education, in our case UID. We therefore set ourselves goals to create a more sustainable university, increase the role of sustainability in our education as well as increasing awareness of students with regards to sustainability.
As part of the climate group I gave a lecture on sustainable materials, see poster above.
I also co-hosted a round table discussion at the 30th anniversary of UID. If you would like to watch the whole video you can contact me.
