Aiming for sustainable design practices is admirable, but sometimes it is difficult to actually embed sustainability into real-life projects. Barriers to incorporating sustainable elements into design practice and individual projects can include push-back from clients and colleagues and the false assumption that sustainability automatically means a price increase. This seminar will be a panel discussion, where you will hear from three practitioners who regularly incorporate sustainability into the base offerings of their respective practices. You will hear how each designer has navigated discussions with unconvinced project stakeholders, incorporated sustainability into project workflows, and the business case for sustainability. You will come away with an understanding of potential challenges and opportunities, as well as resources for transforming your own practice.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

1. Understand how others have embedded sustainability into design practices
2. Identify areas of opportunity
3. Identify current challenges
4. Investigate solutions for your practice using real-life examples and resources provided

Attend from anywhere on any computer (and most mobile devices) with internet access. If you miss the live session, we will send you the recording for you to complete on-demand at your convenience
