Can the creative industries lead us to a sustainable future?
June 10, 2010 by nina
So the CSF is getting very excited about next week’s event, bringing together leaders and innovators on sustainable development and the creative industries to as, can the creative industries lead us to a sustainable future?
YES, we say, although we are sure there will be some more heated debate than that. Head of London College of Fashion Prof Frances Corner will be lead to the doughnut by sustainability guru Jonathon Porritt and joined by Lord David Puttnam, Sebastian Conran, Tim Brown (CEO and president of global design consultancy, IDEO), Franny Armstrong (Director of The Age of Stupid and founder of 10:10) and Michael Pawlyn (Director, Exploration Architecture).
The doughnut is, I assure you, a technical phrase and the centre piece of the ‘talkaoke’ format being used by Forum for the Future and the Creative Industries KTN for the event. This will stimulate highly interactive debate, and you can be a part of proceedings by tuning into the live webstream and offering your comments via Twitter.
