Rise and Design: Design for Net Zero

There's no longer any choice - we have to design stuff that has zero impact. Here's how.
About this event
While we've been focussing on the COVID pandemic, the environmental crisis hasn't gone away. If anything it's just got worse.
It's now imperative that all of us - countries, businesses, individuals find ways to go about our lives making zero impact on the planet.
It won't be easy, but then designers love a challenge, so we've brought together a few of them to share their stories of how they're meeting that challenge.
And to inspire you to do the same.
Speakers include -
Steve Abbott, Hyperdrive Innovation.
Sunderland based Hyperdrive are at the forefront of the global shift to electrification for moving people and things around. Their battery systems power cars, boats, trains and diggers, and perhaps planes next. Steve will give us some insights into the challenges faced by the industry, and the innovations that are overcoming them.
