Compostmodern 13 - Biennial Conference for Sustainability and Design

Faced with a world in seemingly constant disruptive flux, Compostmodern, the biennial conference for sustainability and design, will gather visionaries from around the globe to explore design’s role in creating a more resilient world.

Over the course of two quick-moving, inspirational days, an incredible roster of artists, visual designers, brand strategists, interaction designers, product designers, architects, futurists, sustainability consultants, intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs from across the public, private and nonprofit sectors will tackle vital questions surrounding Resilient design:

  • How can we envision and design social, ecological and economic systems that strengthen society and meet our increasing challenges?
  • How can we apply radical creativity and imagination to remodel and renew systems?
  • How do we retain optimism in the face of disruptive change?
  • How do we live as more fully embodied human beings?
  • How do we move toward doing work that has more meaning?

Explore design’s role in creating a more resilient world, with some of the world’s leading designers, entrepreneurs, scientists, architects and more. Fast-moving, reasonably priced, and loaded with actionable, inspiring insights, Compostmodern is a can’t-miss event for anyone interested in the cutting-edge of sustainability and design.

Compostmodern 2013 and Resilience

Resilience to me means the ability to move through creative challenge with grace… using the powers of awareness, compassion, integrity and clear communication.

My response to Compostmodern 2013's question:
"What does resilience mean to you?"

What is Success?
What is success?
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a health child, a garden
patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;
That is to have succeeded.
- Bessie Anderson Stanley, 1904
Traditionally attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Mental Imagery

“The mind’s eye has a special relationship with the healing system. A great deal of the cerebral cortex is devoted to vision. Located at the back of the head, this part of the brain mostly occupies itself with processing of information from the retinas of the eyes, but when it disengages from that task and turns inward, one of the most important channels for mind/body communication becomes available.”

Dr. Andrew Weil, from the book Spontaneous Healing’
