The Story of Solutions
The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal of Better.
Over the coming year, we’ll be highlighting and supporting game-changing solutions that get us on the path to Better. And we’ll be looking to you for examples from where you live.

The MA Design students (Sheffield Hallam University) are working on a cross disciplinary project called – Sustainable design (thinking & practice). Whilst this project is running I have decided to re-read the book ‘In the Bubble, Designing in a Complex World’ by John Thackara and have been reminded just what a wonderful book it is. For all of you 1st year SHU MA Design and M.Des students this book is a must read. If you want to access an online copy of the book click here

Mega trend has all the hallmarks of something that will go away, be superseded. Using phrases like mega trend is both dangerous and irresponsible – come on HBR you can do better than this.
