This past week in sustainability was exploring and designing for human needs. Unfortunately I was not in class on Tuesday therefore I missed some of the LOLA presentations. It’s not only the product we design, but also the system (paradigm) we use to create it. I really enjoyed the design activity where we had to consider the having, doing, being, and interaction. I had the idea for a community to have a point system where you are graded by your recycling and sustainable lifestyle. With those points, you can use them towards local business in the community. Local businesses that offer activities specifically like dance, and work out classes, art or sewing classes… etc.
