Business and interior architecture students of Woodbury University present: 2011 ADVANCING SUSTAINABILITY – BUSINESS + DESIGN SYMPOSIUM Saturday, October 29, 2011, 10:30-5:30. This year’s symposium will focus on sustainability within the scope of business and design.

The metropolitan area of Los Angeles is facing many environmental, infrastructural and socio-economical challenges in the 21st century. In order to address these, different sustainable concepts and technologies are being developed and successfully implemented. Despite the existence of such solutions, the process of rethinking the world requires time and persistence. More information on the event after the break.

Businesses have been forerunners in implementing sustainable concepts and understanding opportunities. As a result, the energy savings and material efficiency of such companies has become exceedingly competitive in the globalized world. Today, we see sustainable concepts finding their place in our everyday life through the products we use. The demand for sustainable design is on the rise.
