The EcoDesign SIG is affiliated to the Design Society
A relatively new organisation, The Design Society is built on the foundations laid by the earlier WDK (Workshop Design-Konstruktion) Society. WDK was an informally constituted international society based on a common interest in engineering design. This organisation was developed into a formal organisation in 2001, which is today the Design Society. Read more information about the Design Society's background here.
The Design Society and SIGs
The Design Society has initiated a series of topic-oriented Special Interests Groups (SIGs) in order to foster fruitful research discussion in a series of focus areas. SIGs are defined as working groups of the Design Society that address special fields of interest for design professionals. In nature they are:
- temporary bodies within a particular area of interest in design science, design practice or design education
- promoting international cooperation among design scientists, practitioners and educators according to the guidelines of the Design Society
- organising events and activities in their special fields of interest to further the Society's objectives
Our EcoDesign SIG is such an organisation, and is one of thirteen SIGs currently affiliated to the Design Society. Read about the other SIGs here
