The point of the NRW Special is to draw attention to design labels and creative thinkers that have dedicated themselves to sustainability here in NRW. Profiles, home stories, reports and specialist articles will create a pool of multidisciplinary relevance that will serve to enrich the work of other creative thinkers as well as companies, industries, science, and environmental and social institutions.
Furthermore, the NRW Special offers a platform to discuss new innovations/developments and will help form strategic networks. It will serve to identify current trends in NRW, the economy and, in consequence, society as a whole in order to foster sustainable development. The creative thinkers we will be presenting are characterised by the quality and originality of their work. Because “design with awareness” creates an added value that future generations will benefit from.
