The 2008 AIGA San Diego Y Design Conference is going green to bring the biggest players in sustainable design together in what promises to be one of the most thought-provoking and inspiring Y Conferences yet.
The 2-day event will examine how individuals, communities, nations and the world are developing new ways to become a more healthy and sustainable culture. One of the most influential environmentalists and entrepreneurs, Paul Hawken will be opening at the conference as a Keynote Speaker who has authored dozens of books promoting sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. Hawken also participated in Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie The 11th Hour and co-founded a garden supply company called Smith & Hawken. Speakers include the Metropolis editor in chief Susan S. Szenasy, Brian Dougherty, Janet Kübler, Robin Chase, Marc Alt and many others. All speakers come with a variety of sustainable eco-friendly backgrounds ranging from architects, “green” fashion designers, world-renowned scientists to business owners providing online rideshare communities.
Registration is open for AIG Members, Non-Members and Students (special pricing).
