The Sustainability Handbook for Design & Technology Teachers View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    Most people are now aware of their eco-footprint and the need to cut carbon emissions. Local councils have set up recycling schemes and people are encouraged to reduce travel emissions, but this is not enough. Designers need to incorporate sustainability considerations into their work, and this book contains both justification and inspiration for Design and Technology teachers wishing to introduce sustainable design into their lessons.

    The authors introduce the big issues, link climate change and poverty to sustainable design, and encourage us all to develop as active citizens taking on our environmental responsibilities. Each of the six Rs - rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, repair and recycle - is considered in relation to each focus area, with suggested activities and sources of further information.

    The handbook has been produced by Practical Action in collaboration with the Centre for Alternative Technology.
