INTtalks (part of SP22 PEAW) proudly celebrates the recent launch of the Interior Design Sustainability Working Group. During this presentation our group anticipates achieving three objectives. First is to introduce our contributing faculty and announce our mission. The second is to share our resources so they can be easily accessible to both faculty and students. Third is to open the remainder of our time for feedback from the Interior Design Dpt faculty and students to better prepare how sustainability integration can successfully be part of our teaching and learning for all courses.
We are excited to think that the establishment of this workgroup can be a new model for other Pratt departments and schools working with Pratt’s expert faculty, curriculum committee members and departmental sustainability coordinators. How do we systematically envision the design industry while being socially and environmentally responsible? How can we prepare students with a certain level of excitement and optimism towards our future profession and environment?
