Speaking & Workshops

We have traveled the world encouraging others to design for sustainability. We have spoken at professional and academic design conferences (AIGA, UCDA, Cumulus), moderated panel discussions, led workshops with design students and practitioners, and visited design classrooms in-person and virtually. Our main speaking topics are:

  • Sustainable design and systems thinking for the design practitioner
  • Teaching sustainable design and systems thinking for the design educator

We love to share our stories, knowledge, and passion for responsible design through our lectures and workshops, and we’d love to hear from you!
