Glass wall with Creative Workshop written


In March I attended a 1-day CPD accredited workshop at The Design Museum.

The workshop was facilitated by Alexie Sommer, co-founder of URGE Collective.

Sessions included:

Head of Sustainable Bonds at HSBC and Sustainability expert Anjuli Pandit shared insights from the world of ESG. All delegates agreed that we could have listened to Anjuli all day, she was a brilliant speaker.

Recent Earthshot prize winners, Notpla gave an insight into what winning the Earthshot Prize has done for their business. Notpla are using seaweed to develop biodegradable packaging, with a focus on the fast food industry. 

Calculating the Impact of Waste Age with Elsie Foster Vander Elst, Head of Exhibitions at The Design Museum. Elsie explained how the Design Museum went about planning and designing their Waste Age Exhibition to have a lower environmental impact and how they are auditing their carbon emissions. She also shared their key findings and lessons learned, as well as the plans for the future of the exhibition. 

I left with a much better understanding and some clear pathways to look into, as well as good quality resources and a reading list! It was also a great opportunity to network with like-minded design led businesses.
