The Third Exit

The Third Exit

Date: 10 December 2020

Time: 16:30 - 18:30


In this talk, Walker examines some of the significant contradictions in our current approaches to design for a better, more sustainable future and the limitations of these approaches. Walker then proposes a rather different direction, one that integrates the environmental and social aspects of sustainability with individual flourishing and growth. Finally, Walker considers the implications of this direction for business, government and design.


Professor Stuart Walker*, Chair of Design for Sustainability at Lancaster University will make a presentation titled "The Third Exit" in the context of our ID 411 Design in Context class. This particular class session is open to the participation of all interested.
