Life cycle thinking can support thoughtful selection of materials and LCA tools improve the overall ecological profile and project sustainability indicators in a positive and instrumental way.

You will learn:

- how to measure a project's environmental impacts

- tools used to simplify and integrate complex data into your design projects

- how LCA can immediately help designers and design students. You won't want to miss this opportunity for to gain powerful insights to help you meet your sustainable design goals.
