Sustainable Consumption

Laura's research investigates how design practice can lead and foster bottom-up innovation towards sustainable lifestyles. Her specific aim is to study, through the application of design tools and methods, how it is possible to "transform" promising behaviours and good practices in sustainable products and services into everyday realities.

Laura is particularly interested in:

  • design for sustainability and responsible consumption
  • creative communities and collaborative services
  • democratising innovation.
