Digital News Report- The bi-annual Compostmodern conference will again convene in San Francisco on Saturday, February 21, 2009 at the Herbst Theatre. This year’s conference will demonstrate how sustainable solutions converge as design, ecology, social activism, business, and economics intersect.
The San Francisco chapter of AIGA and the AIGA Center presents the conference for Sustainable Design (CFSD). The interdisciplinary conference explores the range of design thinking necessary to create a socially and ecologically responsible society. Designers, manufacturers and business leaders will come together to find inspiration, share knowledge and explore real world opportunities for transforming products, industries and lives.
Last year, Wal-Mart consultant Adam Werbach said, “This was exactly the conference that the community needed and I expect that it will cause the bloom of a thousand new flowers. The world can’t wait.”
The event will be webcast live and will be available for 90 days following, encouraging online participation and satellite events at AIGA chapters and educational institutions everywhere.
