What does sustainable design mean to you?

What’s SHIFT?

SHIFT is an event where ten presenters briefly share their observations, ideas and even challenges in shaping the future of sustainable design. The goal of SHIFT events is to inform, inspire and engage peers, clients and students about sustainable design thinking and practices.

What goes on at SHIFT?

Ten presenters share about a 5 minute presentation each. The evening also includes mingling, Q&A, local snacks, and free beer with your own mug.
