SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueSustainable Design Summit has released the full agenda for the first sustainability summit to unite land, air and cruise interiors industries. In just one day, delegates will gain actionable insights from the panels of experienced practitioners, discover a showcase of intrinsically green products, and come away with a framework for tangible steps to take into their next interior design project.

The Sustainable Design Summit tackles the biggest challenges of designing sustainably head on; their crucial plenary Pitching to Stakeholders: How to Hold a Conversation About Sustainability unites the decision makers of all three sectors, including Bryan Liska, Director of Design Caribbean & Latin America Hilton Hotels, Thomas Westergaard, Vice President Hurtigruten Expeditions sand Tasha Jackson, Sustainability Boeing. 

Chatham House Rules will be in place for sector specific breakout sessions, where each sector can frankly and openly discuss the unique challenges of designing sustainably for that sector, the niche governance informing sustainability progress in that sector and what the delegates as brand owners require from certification societies and the supply chain.

Session leaders include designers, both highly specialised and those who work cross-industry, brand owners and sustainability experts. Brands leading the discussion include Airways, IHG Hotels & Resorts, British Airways, Virgin Voyages, Cundall, SeymourPowel, TUI Cruises and certification and sustainability advisory companies Cradle to Cradle and AIRA. 

Speaker Luke Pearson, Co-founder and Director, Pearson Lloyd, said of seeking cross-disciplinary solutions to sustainable design questions, ‘Working in a multidisciplinary studio, across lots of different fields, we regularly find that we’re able to take good ideas from one area and apply them to another. Ultimately, that approach is the one we’re going to have to take if we’re really going to solve this problem, because we have very little time to solve it.’
