Econ & Ethics of Sust Design
Spring 2023
Taught By: Mariana Gonzalez Ruiz Velasco and Megan Willy
Section: A

CRN: 2688

Credits: 3

This course introduces students to the multiple meanings of sustainability for those in design and in business, including environmental stewardship as well as organizational, economic, and technological sustainability. Students consider the various pressures that globalization exerts on these multiple ideals of sustainability, and learn what kinds of structures, standards and (self-) regulations designers and industries may use to define and monitor their relation to these ideals. Students read texts on the cultural, technological, and business issues involved in sustaining growth and innovation, and explore the economic and ecological implications of "business as usual", in order to begin conceptualizing alternatives to traditional business practices.
