2010 Gordon Research Conference on Industrial Ecology "Industrial Ecology: From Analysis to Design"
The 2010 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Industrial Ecology will examine environmental challenges and remedies at various scales through the lens of design. Industrial ecology is an emerging field that examines local, regional and global uses and flows of materials and energy in products, processes, industrial sectors and economies. The field has primarily focused in the past decade on environmental assessment. Industrial ecology, however, includes an interest in design both as a route to environmental improvement and as a vehicle for realizing the opportunities arising from technological innovation. The conference will therefore examine solutions in the various domains that are central to industrial ecology, exploring the relationship between the field’s well developed capabilities for environmental assessment and the opportunities and constraints arising from a design orientation, including how emergent phenomena and complexity theory relate to a design perspective. The intent is to examine design at multiple scales and in various realms -- from products to networks to large-scale systems to policies.
