Bio | Daniel Goleman

Working as a science journalist, Goleman reported on the brain and behavioral sciences for The New York Times for many years. His 1995 book, Emotional Intelligence (Bantam Books) was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year-and-a-half; with more than 5,000,000 copies in print worldwide in 30 languages, and has been a best seller in many countries.

Goleman’s latest book is Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything. The book argues that new information technologies will create “radical transparency,” allowing us to know the environmental, health, and social consequences of what we buy. As shoppers use point-of-purchase ecological comparisons to guide their purchases, market share will shift to support steady, incremental upgrades in how products are made – changing every thing for the better. Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships, was published in 2006.

SRD CHANGE 09: About

SRD Change is a unique exhibition of graduate sustainable design that often directly challenges conventional expectations. Exhibits are selected from a diverse range of design areas from all of Sydney's top Universities. They feature innovative visual and 3D works, multimedia and even high fashion garments. Held annually since 2004 with healthy annual visitor numbers, we have plans in place to promote our exhibition to an even wider audience.

Tokyo’s urban design role | The Japan Times Online

When governments and corporations are able to connect with residents' passions and potential for action, Tokyo can become an urban forest with a thriving ecosystem where the health of soil, plants, animals and people are deeply intertwined. In the leap from last century's industrial economy to a sustainable future, Japan is poised for an outsized role on the world stage. By focusing on habitats and culture, Tokyo can become a model for a new balance between people and nature in 21st century urban life.

A Place Is Better Than a Plan by Andrew M. Manshel, City Journal 19 October 2009

Small changes are appealing for many reasons. They’re cheap, for one thing. Also, what works can be easily expanded, and what doesn’t work can be as easily terminated or altered. One successful food concession can become two; an unsuccessful stall selling local crafts can be replaced; a planter made from a material that discolors or chips can be replaced with a better one. Contrast that with grand schemes, which can attract broad opposition and be subject to complex political, logistical, and financial obstacles. Once an elaborate design has been committed to, backing away from it—or even altering it—becomes both politically and mechanically complicated. Further, planners have a limited capacity to predict how people will respond to their designs. The larger the project, the more likely unintended consequences become, and the more difficult it is to change course.

This blog was originally started with the intention to feature our 'green' initiative in creating awesome and fascinating lighting sculptures using all parts of the plastic mineral water bottles. We hope to inspire people from all walks of life to view and re-think about using plastics in a different manner instead of just treating it as waste.
Selected artists of interest will also be featured on this blog to provide a wider range of artistic ideas from different fields.

DESIS NETWORK | Design for social innovation and sustainability

DESIS is a network of schools of design and other schools, institutions, companies and non-profit organizations interested in promoting and supporting design for social innovation and sustainability. It is a light, no-profit organization, conceived as a network of partners collaborating in a peer-to-peer spirit.It is articulated in several DESIS-Local (that are sub-networks within a specified local area). DESIS-International is therefore the framework where the different DESIS-Local coordinate themselves and where some global initiatives are taken.
DESIS-China aims to actively support design initiatives and projects in the field of design for social innovation and sustainability in China. That is, in the fields of the ecological reconversion of production and consumption systems, the social construction of services, and the balanced development of local areas. (more)

DESIGN HUB: About Tokyomidtown Design Hub

Taking their opening of offices in the Tokyo Midtown complex as an opportunity, the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, the Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc., and Kyushu University Faculty of Design are embarking on a new activity that underscores their respective features, yet is collaborative at the same time. The conceptual image associated with this collaboration overlaps with that of a wheel that moves Japanese design, ways of life and industry, as well as society as a whole, forward. We therefore named the locus of this activity the Design Hub.

We intend to use this hub as a means of linking Japan and the world, as we go forward in developing the future of design.

TAB Venue – Tokyo Midtown Design Hub

Taking their opening of offices in the Tokyo Midtown complex as an opportunity, the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, the Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc., and Kyushu University Faculty of Design are embarking on a new activity that underscores their respective features, yet is collaborative at the same time. The conceptual image associated with this collaboration overlaps with that of a wheel that moves Japanese design, ways of life and industry, as well as society as a whole, forward. The locus of this activity was named the Design Hub.

Society in the 21st century demands the latent potential of design to be further exerted. Linkages between various spheres of human activity in a cross-disciplinary manner are anticipated, together with proposals that will benefit society.

The Design Hub is the world's first attempt to fulfill these expectations. It is intended as a means of linking Japan and the world, as we go forward in developing the future of design.
