Sustainable Minds kicks off DaS Symposium at COFES

Apr 17

The Design and Sustainability (DaS) Symposium will explore how different sectors are facing the sustainability challenge and discuss areas of common ground, and the drivers behind an increasing need for a tight feedback loop between software and designers at the earliest stages of design. After keynoting on this topic at COFES last year, Terry will kick off the symposium with the session on ‘Integrating Sustainability into the Design Process’ where she will discuss the ideas behind Sustainable Minds, and introduce the emerging 'sustainability performance software' sector. Founding members of The DaS Symposium include Autodesk, Building Smart Alliance, CIFE, Cyon Research, Gensler, Siemens, SolidWorks, and Sustainable Minds.
