General objectives
The course aims at encouraging the student to be sensitive to environmental problems and master the key principles and guidelines for Sustainable Design. The student will be able to apply them to the entire life cycle of the products, whether they are objects, services, communication products, or complex systems.
The topics addressed revolve around the product lifecycle and concern four main themes:
• Historical evolution and principles of the Sustainable Development
• Design strategies to enhance the environmental sustainability of products, services, and systems
• Environmental issues and challenges within the different steps of a product lifecycle, from production to transportation, to use, to disposal. The role of Design is investigated from the perspective of participatory planning and shared responsibility.
• Communicate the environmental sustainability of products and design a sustainable communication.
Upon completion of the theoretical training, the course includes a practical activity where students can apply the design strategies and principles of Sustainable Design to analyse an existing design case study.
