2nd International Design Talk in Ljubljana will address national and international challenges in the field of design and design management as the best strategies for economic growth of every economy. Today’s discussion will include the international experts in this field as well as graduate students of design and design management of national and international faculties.
Innovative sustainable strategy of architecture and design is the answer to many global challenges. Design as part of all creative industries with its profound ability to create new relationships between people is uniquely positioned to engender all the changes.
Designers strive to create a world where design enhances the social, cultural, economic and environmental quality of life. We engage the global industrial design community in activities that enable collaboration aimed at identifying challenges and opportunities for design to address some significant social and environmental issues.
With design, we strive for a better world.
We try to inform, engage and promote the value of design and its impact in humanity and economy. Through the systems of Design Thinking, the “art & design” philosophy, zero waste design, sense design, new aims of creative industries, new design for the new world and transfer of design innovation to industry, we create the future of the world. All our aims are to foster trans-disciplinary alliances and cooperation between researchers, artists, designers, architects and industry members as well as to offer artists new creative tools and strategies that expand the grammar of the traditional arts, cultural heritage and national identity. We try to raise sustainable design and architecture approach and awareness globally.
Therefore, Faculty of Design with RC31 (Development Centre of the Creative Furniture Industry) and KOCles, with Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, with managers, researchers, technological experts, artists and all industry members create new challenges which can comprise innovative sustainable strategy of design paradigms, design thinking green, zero waste solutions, the art & design philosophy, sense design – new aims of creative industries – new design for the new world and transfer of design innovation to industry.
That is how can we create the future of the world.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development enlists great global challenges, so we believe that every human being can do something for better future, better environment, better human rights, water and food for everybody. The 17 sustainable goals and 169 targets are very ambitious plans for social, economic and environmental issues.
