The Learning Network on Sustainability World Distributed Conference
April 3 - April 5
The Learning Network on Sustainability (LeNS) Conference is an international conference for lecturers, researchers, professionals and relevant institutions and organizations. It provides a space for experts from all over the world get together to present and share their knowledge, projects, tools and visions to diffuse sustainability for all. It is a meeting point for those who want to learn and share about design for sustainability with a multicultural, open and copyleft ethos. LeNS vision is to foster a new generation of designers (and design educators and researchers) capable to effectively face the challenge to envision, design and contribute to the transition towards the sustainable world for all.
The conference is targeted at academics, researchers and educators, as well as designers, engineers, businessmen, economists, policy-makers, representatives from governmental and non-governmental organizations.
The event is envisaged as an interdisciplinary arena asking to all stakeholders to adopt the ethos of promoting all possible cross-fertilizing synergies and open learning-by-sharing processes. The conference will create a vibrant and forward-thinking environment, inviting to diffuse new knowledge and share practices and experiences in the ever-increasing need to enable access to sustainability for all.
