Design and Nature: New ways of knowing for sustainability

Written by
This paper explores how we can know in ways that promote new relations between design and nature, for futures of sustainability. The paper shares observations and reflections made over four years in the collaborative process of editing a book (Design and Nature: A Partnership, in press). During the process, we have synergistically tried to explore and manifest what knowing in a paradigm of a more sensitive and careful relationship between design and nature can entail.Insights include the intersectionality of gender discourse with nature and design relations,the opportunities and risks of leaving academic conventions, the centrality of collaboration in pursuing new ways of knowing.
