e-waste Tsunami: Design & Policy Response - Panel Discussion
Friday, March 11, 2016 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003
This panel coincides with the e-waste Tsunami exhibition and workshops running in Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries. The show articulates impacts of environmental policy and sustainability management through photography and data visualization.
As part of a cross-divisional team led by the new MFA Industrial Design Program, the panel expands awareness for the exponentially growing problem of e-waste, especially in India and China. The panel brings together designers, policy experts, and supply-chain participants to raise e-waste awareness and imagine best practice scenarios. The immediate audiences are those who are involved in the design and manufacture of consumer and electronic products, while the secondary audience is very broad and covers those concerned with the broader environmental and social issues around manufactured goods and consumerism. This will be of interest to anyone who wishes to expand their view on the eco systems around the products of technology we consume today.
