What is sustainable design? What does it mean to engineers, architects and industrial designers? What effect will it have on the way our society grows and how we live our day-to-day lives?
A panel with experts from academia and industry will address these questions and other topics such as life cycle assessment, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, industrial design, and existing sustainable developments in an effort to better understand sustainability and its implications.
You are cordially invited to attend, and discover what sustainability means to you!
