Taught by Ignazio Mottola, a Professor of Sustainable Design of 3 schools in Paris, this workshop provides intriguing insights into the world of sustainable design, all in the context of large cities such as Paris. The interactive workshop discusses architecture in big cities, and also the way in which we design products, our systems and processes at home, and how to ensure our society conducts itself in a more environmentally friendly way.
The workshop is interactive, giving the students an opportunity to discuss sustainable design ‘post-CoVid19’, and how our society can take advantage or sustain the the positive aspects resulting from a complete lockdown in cities across the world.
Through interactive exercises, games and debate, students will deepen their knowledge and position on the climate crisis and global warming, to eventually influence and challenge others to join the climate change movement. Whether the Sustainable Design Workshops are held in Paris classrooms, or online through our Zoom channel, participants will have an opportunity to visit projects in and around Paris and your city that are good examples of sustainable design.
