Yesterday on our Twitter feed, we directed readers to our special report on design thinking and noted that a TEDtalk by design thinking icon Tim Brown had just been posted.
There was other Tim Brown-related news yesterday that’s relevant to two of our favorite subjects here: design thinking and sustainability. Turns out Brown’s firm, IDEO, launched Living Climate Change, which hopes to be “a clearinghouse for design thinking about the environment.” The site is just getting started; right now it’s just a showcase for selected designers. But the site makes a promise:
Living Climate Change is a place where the most defining challenge of our time is explored through design thinking. It’s also a place to show, discuss, and share compelling and provocative thoughts and ideas about the future.
If the site really attempts to keep this promise, it should be, at the least, a fascinating experiment.
