I didn’t think there could be a correlation between climate cbreakdown and the unequal treatment of women until I swiped on social media to see the article in question. As environmental degradation and stress on ecosystems increases, that in turn creates scarcity and stress for people, and the evidence shows that, where environmental pressures increase, gender-based […]

The aim of this workshop is to collect some plastic bottles and plan and devise a way of upcycling them into something else. At first I walked around the house and pondered whether there didn’t seem to be too many things that were plastic or empty. But after circling around I soon realised there was […]

When I got this debate I immediately thought of the images of marine life entangled in plastic waste that shocked me many years ago. Those pictures made me realise how plastic is not only polluting the earth, but how badly it is harming other life on earth.  Therefore, despite the fact that the For side […]

This week a big mistake I made was that I read the wrong pages of the book and thus got totally out of my mind. Yet we were still able to agree through discussion on the point that ecologically design is the weave that links nature and culture, that “minimizes environmentally destructive impacts by integrating […]

The book was really challenging for us to read, yet it was really interesting to think about the agency and force of all things. During the seminar, we discussed about how we thought about this thought-challenging view. I think by admitting everything has agency, that every thing is a lively vibrating matter, we can feel […]

This debate’s motion is ‘Designers have not yet come to terms with their complicity in the creation of the conditions of environmental crisis or with their environmental responsibility, nor have they yet reformed their practices accordingly.’ and I was in the team Against. Since I have no experience in debate, I was a little confused […]

I was in team FOR of this debate, but before preparing for it I actually was against this theme. Before the debate, I thought it is nearly impossible to enforce a regulation since technical barriers are not that easy to be tackled and it’s strange to enforce people to all follow one restriction for the […]

Before participating in the second workshop, although I knew that human beings would produce a lot of garbage when producing goods, I didn’t know it would produce so much. This workshop intuitively made me feel the difference between circular and linear. The production and decomposition of substances in nature are circular, all substances are recycled, […]

The first workshop was one of the most interesting ones for me throughout the seminars and workshops. We were asked to find things that connect nature with culture according to the keywords in the given book. During that one hour not only did we notice lots of artificial artefacts getting together so peacefully with nature, […]

As second-year Design Informatics students, we were asked to mentor the first-year students on one of their design course. One of their project proposal was to “Reduce waste and pollution by rationalising the distribution of menstrual product resources, developing new materials and packages, and improving the recycling system. Simultaneously, recover the cost through recycling, and […]
