Values are attributed to products over time and across generations. They are created, compiled, shared, evolved, exchanged, and also discarded. However, creating an explicit theory and analysis on this subject is challenging due to the abstract and multifaceted nature of the topic with a plethora of theories from various research communities. To...

This open access book addresses the issue of diffusing sustainable energy access in low- and middle-income contexts.

Access to energy is one of the greatest challenges for many people living in low-
income and developing contexts, as around 1.4 billion people lack access to electricity.
Distributed Renewable Energy systems (DRE...

Although food has been circular by nature, the current food supply chain has turned into an unfortunate linear system. The challenges of transitioning towards a sustainable food eco-system requires radical changes and new perspectives, where things are done differently. Starting with related work in the field of design for product longevity, the...

Local creative community and design engineers are key stakeholders in initiating a local discourse on sustainability that includes considerations of production and consumption issues. The role of designers is increasingly changing to that of a strategic or facilitator role. Aligned with this global development, we developed Future Living Studio ...

European ecodesign policy is currently bringing material resource efficiency into focus. This paper explores how and to what extent policy addresses sustainable consumption-related issues, and what the consequences may be for the future role of design in supporting sustainable everyday consumption. How will policy help and hinder designers and...

The classical method to compare the environmental impact or eco-burden of different packaging designs is to use life cycle assessment (LCA). LCA requires a functional unit to compare unequal concepts on an ‘equal’ footing, for instance by comparing three 0,5 litre bottles, with one 1,5 litre bottle. Creating this ‘equal’ footing usually ignores...

While sustainability in Design finds much attention in the literature, the education of sustainability in Design courses lacks discussion regarding curricula and importance. In an attempt to map the way sustainability is taught in Design Bachelor and Master Courses in the European Union, we began analysing faculties from a number of EU countries...

For better or worse, products contribute to shaping the behaviour of their users. Hence, designers have the opportunity, or if you are so inclined the responsibility, to take those potential behaviour changes into account in their design process. Through thoughtful design, they may aim to change user behaviour for the better and make it, for...

Many life cycle assessment studies document that the most resource demanding phase during the clothing life cycle is the use period. This paper discusses how to reduce the environmental impacts of clothing use by improved design. Complete systems thinking is required, evaluating contributions by all the actors in the clothes’ life cycle chain....

Design for sustainable behaviour implies applying design strategies that have been proposed to realize sustainable products that take into account human behavior, thereby minimizing user-related environmental losses. In addition, the application of linked-benefit strategies has been suggested to ensure the design of commercially interesting...

China has a largest population in the world (1.3Billion) and 0.9 Billion is rural population. Most of rural people earn less than US$3/day, and they are called “Base of the economic pyramid (BoP)”. Compared with high level market, BoP is a new market, which means a low individual profit, but a large population. This paper discusses the...
