When storytelling meets sustainable design

This project was part of DDW 2023

In the face of climate collapse, designers must steer industries away from extractive usage models and guide users towards mindful lifestyles.

To truly glimpse the impact of design and make decisions accordingly, we must understand the product we design in context.

Storytelling is vital for unraveling links between ecology, sociopolitical systems and products.

Storytelling is key to how we approach the challenge to understand and communicate the entangled and interconnected nature of ecology with our sociopolitical systems and products.

Visual thinking is one of the many intuitive and inclusive languages we use to tell stories, reason at system-level, detect leverage points and, of course, design! It can make complexity approachable and depict different ways we can design towards a thriving and sustainable society.
As an essential part of our process, Accenture aims to devote this exhibition to visual storytelling. With this exposition, we explore and discuss the value of storytelling for the required sustainable transitions through the work of talented designers.
