What an exhausting, inspiring and motivating week this has been. Unfortunately I got back from the Sustainability Summit too late to hear the first keynote speaker, Cameron Tonkinwise, but thankfully I got a chance to speak with him one-on-one Saturday after going to lunch with him and a few other speakers including William Drenttel and Cheryl Heller.
realized there are about 8 million books I still need to read
systemic versus system
we need to figure out how to UNdesign things (design things out of existence)
Project M = community responsibility and involvement can work
we have too many impermanent objects created out of permanent materials
place versus lack of place
we live in our heads too much
“go green” is known; “social change” is not
“do what you love and the money will follow”
“all business is personal”
design as facilitator not just a “stuff maker”
“we are all creative idiots”
I made some great connections that I hope to utilize in the near future.
Oh yeah… I won the poster competition too
