Distributed Design Academy 2020

Week 3 – Designing For Good

Every year, Fab Lab Barcelona at The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia organises and runs an academy as a form of knowledge exchange. The topics are based around a series of projects that are carried out by Distributed Design Platform members in line with distributed design principles.

This year the academy is divided into five online modules with a module each week. The academy is made up of private exclusive training for the academy students, plus free and open to the public talks by experts in their field. This is one of those free talks. 

Week 3 module, Designing for Good will have Tom Meades, designer and co-founder of gomi, giving a talk about how his team of innovators have brought to life a series of tech products made from locally sourced waste materials such as non-recyclable plastic waste, and most recently, reclaimed battery cells. Join the talk to find out how gomi is proving tech essentials can be made sustainably, and how they are building the systems to turn waste into consumer electronic products.
