THE DESIGN OF PROSPERITY INITIATIVE is more than just a conference.
THE SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR PRESENT FUTURE conference and workshop that took place on November 2 and 3, are part of the wider The Design of Prosperity initiative of the University of Borås and The Swedish School of Textiles in partnership with REALISE strategic consultants.
The Design of Prosperity initiative aims to be a lighthouse for all agents taking part in the construction of a new understanding of prosperity. Especially in times of radical change, our initiatives offer a gamut of new knowledge platforms that give completely new points of orientation for decision makers in business, politics and culture.
Above all, The Design of Prosperity project sees itself as a platform for the creation of the Centre of Excellence at The University of Borås devoted to multi-dimensional and trans-discipline knowledge exchange for the purpose of understanding the ethical, aesthetical, ecological, technological, economic, and social challenges of our global societies, and to discuss and work toward resolving those challenges with top-class Swedish and international leaders, experts and innovative thinkers.
The Design of Prosperity project also sees itself as an innovative workshop for action-oriented educational and social innovation strategies, and for the development of new cultural, economic and entrepreneurial approaches that will bring new meaning and vitality to our over-saturated consumer markets.
The Design of Prosperity is ultimately a think tank where new ideas, models and methods are checked, theoretically confirmed, consolidated and taught in seminars to both our students and companies’ associates.
