“Design-for-Sustainability’ (DfS) promotes products, services, and systems that deliver positive impacts to society, the environment, and the economy.  In the South-to-South event, DfS educators from Australian and Latin American universities will jumpstart collaborative relationships in DfS education and research and share expertise and experiences in a two-way knowledge exchange.  The event is co-organized in Rio de Janeiro by the UFRJ Coppe DESIS Lab, with other partners (see below).
