Lunch & Learn: Waste - The Shifting Role Of Design

Mounting ecological and economical challenges are forcing designers to rethink how, and what, we design. In this talk and workshop we'll explore: how designers can think beyond human-centered design to understand the systems we're connected to and impacting? We'll also explore design thinking tools to help innovators design waste out of our products and services. Join us!

His current design work is as a systems and circular-economy designer with King County, Impact BioEnergy, and the City of Seattle's Office of Economic Development.


We'll be ordering sandwiches and salad from Homegrown. You can either buy into that order, bring your own lunch, or eat ahead of time. Just choose the right ticket option for you.
