The designer is moved by curiosity in the face of new challenges and the passion to find possible solutions, and as Massimo Vignelli said: “creativity needs the support of knowledge to be able to perform at its best”. This knowledge is the nutrient that, with awareness and responsibility, enables us to overcome the challenges that arise in an increasingly more complex context, and it is our polyhedral vision which facilitates tackling them successfully.
For this reason, the Department of Sustainability of the IED Madrid works to respond to the commitment that design has with society and with our environment, guaranteeing the quality of life of today’s and future generations.
From the Area of Sustainability, training is offered to the Masters of Design and Innovation students, whose core is the systemic, responsible and passionate approach to the project, focusing on people, their wellbeing and that of ecosystems. From innovation and entrepreneurship, we wager on a development which does not always go hand in hand with growth.
