Our Material Future: The State of Sustainability in Design Industries

Tuesday, April 20th / 11am EDT

Every brand and producer is concerned about sustainability - some brands better than others. Some industries fare better in their approach, but what is the overall, generational, global effect of our materials choices in reducing impact? What is the state of sustainability in the consumer-facing design industries?

Join us as we take a broad, multi-industry look at the state of our current approach to reducing environmental impact through material selection, and what steps we really need to take now to further reduce this footprint.


About the Series

Sustainability and circular economy are top of mind for manufacturers and consumers... but what does that mean for material scientists, engineers, and designers? How might we best address these issues?

Drs. Andrew Dent and Gayatri Keskar host a series of discussions surrounding material and technology solutions that address the extremes that our industries, and the world around us, continue to face in regard to climate change and raw material sourcing.


What You Can Expect

  • Join Material ConneXion's Research Team and leading material experts / thought leaders for an insightful conversation on material topics.
  • Gain valuable insight into new materials and manufacturers working to solve for current and future environments and requirements.
  • A live Q&A follows the conversation. Attendee participation is requested... come ready with questions!
