International Forum: Design for Sustainability in Emerging Economies, UAM, Mexico (2nd -6th June)

The Forum has been organized by The Environmental Department of the Division of Science and Art of Design, Autonomous Metropolitan University of Mexico City. It has invited experts in Design for Sustainability (both from Holland and Italy) and key representatives in this field from the four major emerging economies: Brazil, China, India and Mexico. The forum’s objective is to share experience and to explore the ways in which Design for Sustainability (DfS) can be strengthened in emerging economies. And will look into the concept of policy, innovation systems and how various actors (such as universities, private industry, government and civil society) can do to stimulate DfS in emerging economies.
Mr. Benny Leong was invited as one of the keynote speakers to present the latest findings of the ‘Lifestyle China’ research project, about the importance of alternating everyday consumption practices of middle-income urban Chinese from both the socio-cultural and political perspectives.
