Unmaking Waste:  Transforming Production and Consumption in Time and Place (May 2015, Adelaide Australia)

Dates: 21-24 May 2015
Location: Zero Waste SA Research Centre for Sustainable Design and Behaviour, University of South Australia, Adelaide
Website: www.unmakingwaste2015.org
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 17 October 2014

Waste is created when we no longer value something we create, possess or use. Barriers to prematurely discarding goods and resources have steadily fallen in recent years. Easy credit, low prices, instant online access, and a 24 hour promotional media all reinforce an expanding consumerism.

While much effort has gone into researching and implementing successful technical strategies for reducing waste and emissions, accelerating rates of consumption are undermining these efforts. It is clear that we need new systems-based approaches to reduce this excess consumption, including the excesses of our ‘waste-making’, to generate a more sustainable circular economy.

This conference invites participants to explore new approaches to reduce the speed, volume and impacts of ‘waste-ready’ global consumerism.

Progetto Grafico 28 International Graphic Design Magazine (IT) – Topic: Publishing

Deadline for submissions: 15 January 2015
Contact: redazione_progettografico@aiap.it

Progetto grafico 28: Publishing

Edited by Maria Rosaria Digregorio, Silvio Lorusso, Silvia Sfligiotti, Stefano Vittori

By devoting an issue to “Publishing,” which has always been a central theme for people dealing with communication design, Progetto grafico has decided to start by redefining and expanding upon the term, going beyond its primarily editorial connotations to explore its significance as “making public; disclosing; popularizing.” The latter seems to be a core issue for both those who design/produce editorial material (professionally or otherwise) as well as those who use it.
