The Learning Network on Sustainabilility - LeNS is a 3 years project, involving 7 design schools in Europe and Asia:

  • to develop an Asian-European multi-polar network for curricula development on Design for Sustainability focused on Product-Service System
  • to contribute to curriculum development, in a reciprocal understanding of cultures, by promoting a new generation of designers (and design educators) capable to effectively contribute to a transition towards a sustainable society.

LeNS promotes a new shared and articulated disciplinary ground on Design for Sustainability focused on Product-Service System, through a series of exchange activities and pilot courses at the partner institutions.

LeNS has produced an open learning e-package, a modular package of teaching materials (texts, slide shows, audio, video, etc.) and tools for designers that design educators worldwide are able to download (free of charge), modify/remix and reuse (copy left). LeNS also promotes diffusion activities targeting the design community worldwide.

As a project spin-off the following affiliated HEIs network were established: LeNS Africa, LeNS South America, LeNS Central America, LeNS Oceania, LeNS German Speaking Languages, LeNS China and LeNS India.
