Designing Future Transitions: VEIL methodology

In June Chris Ryan delivered a paper on the methodology developed for the VEIL program at the UNEP and Greening of Industry international conference on Joint Actions for Climate Change, in Aalborg Denmark.

The paper entitled; “Designing Future Transitions. A new role for eco-design: envisaging future systems, revealing the hidden present” describes the development of the methodology used in the VEIL project, setting this in the context of a global search for ways to plan for the structural change required in response to Climate Change (both mitigation and adaptation). The paper illustrates the VEIL approach with reference to the recent work on the EBD (‘Eco-City) project. It is currently being readied for publication in an academic journal.
