Atlanta Design Festival Talk

This article was written 4 years ago.

In 2020 I was invited to give an online talk for the Atlanta Design Festival on the subject of waste and how it can be turned into something to be treasured once more in a bid to help us to tackle the global waste crisis and climate change.

‘The annual Atlanta Design Festival is an open platform, ideal for fostering international dialogue on the economic and social impact of design. It provides connection, the free exchange of knowledge, design thinking and community building. Each year the Festival brings together independent designers, established brands, young talent, international speakers from academia, NGOs and government entities, exhibitions, installations and architecture tours – all centered on the economic and societal impact of design. We define this activity as ‘the design economy’ – the direct and indirect value created by those who use design in a wide variety of industries.’ Atlanta Design Festival.
