Demi: A case study in design for sustainability

Fletcher, Kate and Dewberry, Emma (2002). Demi: A case study in design for sustainability. International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 3(1) pp. 38–47.



The Design for the Environment Multimedia Implementation Project – demi – links design and sustainability information in a Web-based resource and was set up in response to a number of UK Government reports which highlighted the dearth of knowledge and activity about sustainability in higher education design courses across the country. This paper details the design and development of demi, discussing its content, structure and educational potential. Also included is an investigation of design and sustainability pedagogy, which discusses the importance to the demi Web-resource of a sustainability (rather than design) context and an exploration of the possible transferability of the demi structure to other disciplines, promoting practical and widespread action in education for sustainability.
