Denmark is a world leader in the move towards a more sustainable future, and strongly espouses the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. The next stage in the development towards sustainability will be very challenging, as we seek to further drastically reduce our environmental impacts and our dependence on non-renewable resources. The Conceptualising Sustainable Futures Day will explore the contribution that design can make in this regard: in the first half of the day, national and international experts will present the challenges that we face in our water, food, manufacturing and energy systems. In the second half of the day, design strategies and approaches to address the systems issues will be presented, and attendees will participate in a workshop in which the power of design thinking as a conceptualisation tool is explored.

Sustainable Development goals and the role of Technology
Engineering our future: design, life cycle and systems thinking
Prof. Chris McMahon, DTU-MEK
Chris McMahon is former Professor of Engineering Design at the University of Bristol in the UK, and immediate Past-President of the international Design Society. In this talk he will outline how design, life cycle and systems thinking can come together to help us address resource and environmental constraints in the 21st century.
The Future Challenges of Sustainable Energy
The Water/Food/Energy Nexus
Dr. Aidong Yang, University of Oxford
University Lecturer in the Department of Engineering Science and Research Fellow of Green Templeton College. His research involves developing methods and tools for modelling biochemical processes and related systems and in applying models and other systems engineering approaches to support the development of sustainable energy, engineering and manufacturing systems.
The Future Challenges of Sustainable Manufacturing
Prof. Steve Evans, University of Cambridge
Director of the Centre for Industrial Sustainability at the University of Cambridge, where he leads research that seeks a deep understanding of how industry develop solutions that move us towards a sustainable future. He has 12 years industrial experience and over 20 years of academic experience in improving engineering performance and tackling complex, real-life problems, which includes working collaboratively with leading industrial and academic institutions from around the globe.
System level design: product, value chain and territory
Prof. Nadege Troussier, Université de Technologie de Troyes
Nadège Troussier is Professor at the University of Technology of Troyes, France, where she leads the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Sustainable Development (CREIDD). Her research interests are in Information System for responsible design of sustainable systems. She obtained her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 1999, and worked at the University of Technology of Compiègne from 2000 to 2012 on knowledge management and the use of virtual prototyping to manage system performance and robustness in product design processes.
WORKSHOP: Design for resilience and sustainability
Prof. Kristin Wood, Head of Pillar, Engineering Product Development, Singapore University of Technology and Design
Professor Wood is Co-Director of the SUTD/MIT International Design Center and founding Head pf the Product Design Pillar at SUTD, where his research focuses on projects related to product design, development, and evolution. In this “micro-design innovation” workshop he will guide participants through the stages of the design process to explore how issues of resilience and sustainability may be addressed in example scenarios.
