    Routledge, London, 2015

    Routledge Handbook for Sustainability and Fashion, which Mathilda has co-edited with Kate Fletcher, is now out. With the bold ambition of setting the research agenda for fashion and sustainability for the next ten years, the book comprises chapters from a broad range of key scholars and practitioners in the field of sustainability/fashion, including John Thackara, John Ehrenfeldt, Lynda Grose, Ann Thorpe, Otto von Busch, Joanne Entwistle. Mathilda’s chapter Futures of futures studies in fashion draws on a framework for peace building to explore new pathways for sustainability endeavours in fashion.


  2. Oxford Design Charette

    Oxford, St Hilda's College. 26 August, 2014.

    In August 2014 the staff at Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden gathered in Oxford for two intensive learning days in preparation for the launch of two new degree programmes, Design + Change and Visual Communication + Change , in 2015.  Mathilda and Anette facilitated a design charette which  enabled the staff to go through the six terms of the three years of the degree programmes in one intense day!

    A key insight was how valuable an immersive process without disruptive show-and-tells can be. The staff engaged in a series of mini-projects, involving mapping, role-play, making and more, staying inside the process all day long. Instead of formal presentations of project results, each term ended with a quiet moment of ‘graphic harvesting’ of experiences through means of drawing and writing.

  5. Design for Behaviour Change

    Designers are in the business of designing for behaviour change. Les Robinson’s article in The Guardian: how the science of behaviour change can help with sustainability’  discusses the role of design in enabling sustainable futures and says: “one of the biggest changes to the practice of social change in recent years has been the entry of design professionals into the field. They bring a system of thinking based on immersive research, wide ranging inspiration, prototyping, piloting and redesign” (Robinson, 2011). As part of a multi-disciplinary effort it is good to read the acknowledgement on how design can contribute to important change.
