Predicting a sustainable future
In the coming future, global population as well as the temperature of the planet will grow dramatically, while fossil resources will decline. There will be a need of more and more energy and food, and the necessity to reduce green house gas emissions. A designer, that is an innate specialist of future prediction because his work will happen forward in time, has to take in account these apparent limitations and use them as resources. A great responsibility towards future generations is on our shoulders, and our job is to face this amazing challenge with creativity!
