International Conservation Design – developing a design style/format for a project in Vietnam.
In 2017 there were average of 1,270,406 people in the sky at any given time and the increase in international travel alongside the Internet has created challenges and opportunities for both designers and conservationists. Tourism contributes economically to local economies and provides an opportunity to spread the conservation message but pressures on habitat also increases the need for conservation.
Using one of University of Sunshine Coast's conservation partners in Vietnam, students will develop a design style/format that relates to both international multi-cultural visitors and locals, including school children.
Design content will be provided.
Kevin Todd is the Associate Director (Conservation Design), University of Sunshine Coast International at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia where he works with design students to realise projects in Australia, SE Asia and South Africa.
Kevin is an artist, designer and educator who has also taught in the USA, India, China, Germany, Turkey, Ecuador and Mexico. He is concerned about the global standardisation of design style due to technology and feels that cultural diversity is as important as ecological diversity
