CESC & Green Leap

Published Apr 27, 2012

Green Leap, a newly established network for sustainable design, becomes a part of CESC. The network is a collaboration between KTH and Konstfack University College of Arts, Craft and Design and is supported by The Swedish Energy Agency.

“Green Leap is a strong complement to CESC’s research interest in ICT and sustainability”, says Mattias Höjer, Director of CESC. The collaboration provides great potential for current and forthcoming CESC-research to be further developed in Green Leap projects.

Green Leap will be an independent research group within CESC, building bridges between design industry, academy and other actors with an interest in sustainability. The group is led by Sara Ilstedt, professor in product and service design, and Teo Enlund, senior project leader with a background in industrial design.

Besides startup and networking activities, Green Leap and CESC have launched the umbrella project “Prototyping the future”, also financed by the Swedish Energy Agency. The project will develop design prototypes in order to visualize future sustainable lifestyles, thus combining CESC’s competence in futures studies and Green Leap’s knowhow on visualisation and design.
