:: Starter Activities
This section is intended to provide a range of activities to introduce ideas of
sustainability to students. They are based on activities used in training days.
The activities give an insight into how our decisions as consumers impact
on the lives of other people, both now and in the future. They help
students understand how our lifestyles may be unsustainable and how they may
be making life more difficult for other people elsewhere.
They also encourage students to think about
generations and their own approach as designers and makers. Some argue that
consumers consume what producers produce and that producers produce what
designers design. It may not be as simple as that, but certainly designers must
take some responsibility for whether or not we have a sustainable future.
