What Social Outcome does your Design Strategy Have? Open Lectures and Debate Start March 24th 2012 at Slow Studio, London

What fuels humans between the ages of 16 and 36 to discard millions of tonnes of clothing, shoes and accessories across the globe each year?
British philosopher, Alain de Botton, suggests a significant contributing factor is ‘status anxiety’. 
He lists five cultural contributors to status anxiety. These are lovelessness, snobbery, expectation, meritocracy and dependency. 
These are socially driven dynamics. 
As a human being and a creative, how will you create designs, systems and services that address the destructive aspect of these cultural traits? How can your design skills intervene and stall systems of  lovelessness, snobbery, expectation, meritocracy and dependency?

The Slow Design Lectures & Seminars start March 24th 2012 in London.
