How do sustainable design methods drive product innovation?

A series of workshops will help you find answers for your own practice. Offered as part of a UC Berkeley research project on innovation from green design, the workshops teach you a set of three sustainable design methods, all of which have been lauded as improving product innovation. You practice each method on your own designs, receiving personalized guidance from the instructor. Normally worth $5,000 each, these workshops will be offered for free in exchange for participation in the research.

The design methods are:
  • Whole Systems Mapping
  • Biomimicry
  • The Natural Step
  • Four-hour and two-hour versions of each workshop are available. Workshops are intended for product design and engineering teams, both in product manufacturing companies and in product design consultancies.
