Astonished by this video, the first one hour really showed an understanding of how the world will become extinct through global warming and other issues such as resource depletion and pollution if we continue to live the way we are living now. Being the only animal on the planet able to recognize how our actions could effect the future, we should utilizes this, look ahead and recognize where the opportunities lie, and maybe we can save our existence… SO WHY DON’T WE??
As designers I feel that we should join together and totally re think the way in which people use resources and change their understanding and behavior towards products. Products need to fulfill A need, so why are there so many products for one need ?? … being just a theory there might be some faults to this but after watching this video I really do think that people and designers need to change their attitudes toward a product.
This seems like a big step for one person but I feel if you want to tackle large scale ecological problems then it has to be a neutral agreement between large scale communities to find the solution and to dedicate their actions to change behavior.
