Event details

Nottingham Trent University is pleased to be hosting the first international conference to examine Product Lifetimes and the Environment (PLATE) in the context of sustainability.

This groundbreaking event will include keynote presentations, discussion, debate and workshops, an exhibition and a gala dinner.

Conference aims

We will be reviewing current research on how and why increased product lifetimes have become an important element in resource efficiency, waste reduction and low carbon strategies for sustainability.

Academic researchers, industry representatives and policy stakeholders will share knowledge and experience on the influence that product longevity has on environmental, economic and social sustainability.

Conference themes

PLATE will embrace a multidisciplinary perspective including design, geography, anthropology, business management, economics, marketing and consumer behaviour, sociology and politics. The conference will explore the following themes, among others:

  • design approaches to product longevity
  • the role of product longevity in resource efficiency and waste reduction
  • strategies for product lifetime optimisation
  • cultural perspectives on the throwaway society
  • business opportunities, economic implications and marketing strategies
  • consumer influences on product lifetimes
  • policies, regulation and legislation.
