The Life Cycle Thinking series was made possible through the support of the Hothouse at Unitec, the Ministry for the Environment with support from Prodesign, The Designers Institute of New Zealand, Better by Design, Landcare Research, Scion and Formway. The LCT workshops were a series of three progressive workshops covering:
Life Cycle Thinking - A Design Mindset;
Life Cycle Management - From Product to Company;
Life Cycle Tools & Approaches - Implementing Change.
Locus designed a series of worksheets and stickers to create an action learning experience that was engaging and fun. The content focusses on constructive actions that individuals and companies can take to improve the sustainability within their organisation and their products and services. It describes how design can use Life Cycle Thinking to create innovative new products and services that are not
just efficient but effective. The series draws on the experiences of key practitioners in New Zealand: Timothy Allan, Jake McLaren, Barbara Nebel, and Sarah McLaren, and the action learning experience of Cris de Groot.
The 2-day course is ideally suited for a companies executive management team to help them better understand life cycle thinking and how it can improve the environmental footprint of their company and create more innovative products and services.
