In September 2017 the first multi-year standing lab undertaken by NouLAB was launched on the topic of Economic
Immigration. Along with more traditional Social Innovation Lab methodologies such as design thinking, systemic
design and Social Labs structures as defined by Hassan (2014), Jones (2014), and Westley et al. (2015), NouLAB
employed the participatory practices of the Art of Hosting and Harvesting Conversations that Matter (AoH) to design
and facilitate lab sessions.
The Economic Immigration Lab (EIL) has run for 18 months, and two full cycles. NouLAB has identified
linkages between the AoH approach and the systemic principles of design. Of specific interest is how multi-stakeholder
participants’ learning and capacity is effectively enabled by the practice of holding space, encouraging an atmosphere
of psychological safety, experimentation, learning, and addressing root causes of problems.

From the perspective of landscape environmental policies and usage situation, were the landscape construction actually
services for the public? This issue had a strong correlation with the sustainability. Based on the previous research
of Yanqing County landscape, this study took the extensive attention of Xiadu Park as example, from the perspective
of public feedback and government strategy in park construction, and through the analysis of social media data and
on-site investigation, and studied the usage situation of Xiadu Park. Finally, this research put forward that landscape
design was not only related to public health and happiness, but also has the important role of serving and guiding
public values.

This paper mainly adopts the shared sustainable design method and theory to carry out research and design on children’s
toys in the community, in order to promote the sustainable development of the community, analyse the current
situation and existing problems of children’s toys in the sustainable community, and then make corresponding
design solutions and design evaluation. At last, this paper summarizes and forecasts the expected sustainable lifestyle
of the toy sharing system for children based on sustainable community. Through the research and design of sharing
children’s toys, this paper points out that sharing design of sustainable community, especially the sustainable lifestyle
described in children’s toy-sharing design, has a promising future.

This paper argues the emerging needs of incorporating regional eco-material archive in design education from the
perspective of the constructivist point of view and active learning approaches. It is a critical reflection on the pedagogical
development on sustainable product design education in School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic
University since the 90’s. Action research method is carried out into the longitudinal reflective study in which the
continuous refinement of the educational approaches will be reviewed with the illustration of different types of cases
and initiatives of the teaching activities. The summary includes the recommendations of a framework to support
active learning with physical eco-materials archive and cases to enable the design exploration about the cycle of local
resources, local production, local consumption, and local recycling.

As a design strategy with great sustainable potential, product-service systems are widely used to discuss issues related
to sustainable developpment. However, systems that are not properly designed will generate further serious irreversible
consequences on the environment. It is therefore necessary to accurately assess and analyze the environmental
impact of product-service system solutions. This paper expands the method of environmental life cycle analysis from
the analysis of products to the analysis and evaluation of product-service systems, discusses life cycle differences between
product-service systems and traditional product models, and demonstrates the application of life cycle analysis
methods to systems. The process unit establishment method was applied in sustainable design curriculum, in which
a sustainable takeaway lunch service system solution that was proposed in the course was tested. The process unit
was described to provide a theoretical basis and support for future in-depth measurement and analysis.

Shimen County is famous for its citrus, but Shimen citrus is deadly unmarketable. Many research teams and government
departments are trying new models of agricultural production and sales. They hope to find new ideas which fit
Shimen’ s conditions for agricultural development. The article tries to use sustainable product-service system design
thinking to solve the problem.
Product-service system design (S. PSSD) considers the sustainability of an industry from the three dimensions
of economy, society and environment. It attaches importance to the whole life cycle of the product.The article uses
blueprint to analyse each step of Shimen citrus’ life cycle first. Then the article uses service design method such as
SWOT and Cluster to help with the design process.
