Since the summer of 2019, Re-nourish has been helping to get the Climate Designers project launched and effective in creating climate action in the design community. As part of that initiative, we are hoping to affect design education to help graduate the next workforce of climate designers. Instead of the traditional status-quo design graduate that helped contribute to this climate mess, we hope to inspire educators and students to use their powers to create for the social good and drawdown our greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
In our own personal journey in teaching climate design (through a pandemic) in spring 2020, Marc O’Brien, Kristian Bjonard, and Eric Benson met over Zoom and recorded their conversations asking ourselves three questions:
1. What’s been working?
2. What’s been a challenge?
3. What’s a question you still have?
We’re happy to release “Behind the Syllabus: A Four-Episode Climate Podcast”
