Sustainable Design Practices | A Design Week Portland Event

Join us for a Design Week Portland event in conjunction with Design Museum Portland as we assemble an expert panel to discuss sustainability as a design principle. Sustainable design practices are not just a way of designing, but a way to reduce negative impacts on the environment for a better future. Designers worldwide are rapidly developing and adopting new sustainable practices and encourage the design community to learn more about the movement. We’ll cover themes such as the challenges with sustainable design, sourcing materials, upcycling and reusing materials.

This panel discussion is part of the Design Museum Portland UNITE with themes at the intersection of design and just about everything else. Design Museum sets a theme and curates panelists that each cover a different facet of that topic — the goal is to bring together a broad community of diverse people around design. The event begins with mingling and networking, after the panel discussion there is a Q & A segment. Join us for conversation, local wines and tasty bites.
