Life Cycle Thinking: Masterclass
Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on June 16th, 2010
The Life Cycle Thinking Masterclass is a high level training course for designers, engineers, managers, educators and product developers presented by two leading experts in environmental product development. Tim Grant from Life Cycle Strategies is one of Australia’s leading life cycle assessment (LCA) professionals with over fifteen years experience in assessing environmental impacts of products. Leyla Acaroglu, director of Eco Innovators is a leading eco design advisor who brings a wealth of knowledge of innovative and economically viable approaches to integrating environmental considerations into the product development process.
The masterclass will provide participants with an advanced level of understanding on life cycle thinking, build capacity in identifying environmental impact areas and introduce design and management solutions to address these. The full day course will explore how to identify the most appropriate tools and resources to draw on in the product development process. Having identified these participants will look at when to internalise these and when specialist input is required.
Participants will also examine how to communicate powerful environmental messages without greenwashing. This course is a must for professionals wanting to advance their capacity to advance in an environmentally concerned marketplace.
