is pretty much one of my favorite conferences. To my knowledge, it was the first conference of its kind (started in 2006) to really craft an agenda that discussed the intersection of design and sustainability in an inspiring and engaging way that was relevant to people working in sustainable industries AND designers looking for sustainable solutions. I remember leaving the last one practically bounding down the steps of the Morgan Auditorium and resisting the urge to throw my hat in the air like Mary Tyler Moore with a completely expanded view of what was possible--a perfect way to start a new year (2006 ruled!).
is putting on the second Compostmodern in a few weeks. On the agenda: the Designers Accord
, Nau Clothing
, the AIGA Center for Sustainable Design
, and Adam Werbach
. The always insightful Joel Makower
will emcee. If you're in San Francisco, you'd be a fool not to attend--2008 is full of possibilities. Early bird registration closes soon
.Correction (January 11, 2008): Compostmodern began in 2004---even further ahead of the curve! If you haven't registered yet, do it now!
