What is EcoDesign?

By ecology in this context is meant comprehensive actions that take the environment into consideration, minimizing the consumption of energy and natural resources as well as the production of waste and emissions. An ecological product is produced, used, recycled and disposed of in a natural manner.

The problems of sustainable development are challenging designers, manufacturers and consumers alike to consider ecological values and operating methods. A designer is in a key position to influence the operating methods and materials used in the production of products. Ecological thinking brings forth new challenges, but, at the same time, offers completely new opportunities. The EcoDesign exhibition aims to highlight these matters and stimulate discussion.
