NOTE: Although targeted primarily at scientists, I am posting this CFP because it relates to policy and organizational design, decision-making, and other areas of interest to designers and design researchers.

The Union of Concerned Scientists is seeking abstracts for three symposia at this year’s American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting from December 15-18 in San Francisco. I hope that you and other members of the UCS Science Network will consider submitting an abstract.

Design Action, Leadership, and the Future (July 2011, Brisbane)

Dates & Location: Brisbane HotHouse 22-24 July, 2011
Expressions of interest due: 6 May 2011

Design practice (in all its disciplines, including architecture) is at a crossroads. Notwithstanding the introduction of ‘sustainability’ in design education and in commerce, design dominantly still serves the unsustainable. To move toward ‘sustainment’ as project and process, radical and effective action is needed. For this to happen, a dynamic, global change community of focused thinkers, activists and leaders has to be created. This intensive ‘HotHouse’ event aims to explore the creation of this community and to be a catalyst for its creation. It is only for the committed.

Anyone – educators, design practitioners, writers – can apply. 50 people will be selected. The event will be conducted in English.
