As part of the EDAC group of ETH Zurich, I am lead author of a paper on an experiential didactic approach to teach systemic design for sustainability by building eco-friendly skis.
Our paper is published in the peer-reviewed proceedings of the International Engineering Design Conference 2017 in Vancouver and thankfully presented by our team colleague Alexandra Blösch at the conference:
TEACHING SYSTEMIC DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABILITY IN ENGINEERING BY BUILDING ECO SKIS
