From Flint to Footprint 2: Unmaking

During Dutch Design Week 2022 three early evening pop-up salons connect a research on human footprints by designer Ineke Hans and DEA alumni Ned Kaar, with curator Annemartine van Kesteren’s online expo 'The Decay Economy' for Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.

How to 'make' a sustainable society, how to learn from the past and how to get grip on rationales such life cycle assessments and footprints calculations? Is that possible at all? 

In public conversations atn three different locations, the current and historical changes in our ecological, social and economic footprints are discussed by various stakeholders in the current footprint debates that have been explicitly brought together: Designers & Makers (producers) , Users & Shakers (policymakers & trailblazers).
The conversations are moderated by Ned Kaar.

The second salon will focus on key terms within discussions around sustainability such as circularity and biomaterials. New materials present alternative means of making without the use of fossil fuels, however the reality of a world made up of circular and bio-based materials still has some way to go. What is the role of collaboration in achieving sustainability goals and what are the challenges in moving toward a circular economy? How are certifications and standards impacting the practice of designers and makers? How might users see the forest for the trees and how can policymakers support this process?
