Save The World Through Design (with Katie Patrick)

by | The Accidental Creative

When you think about design, you probably think about things like packaging, graphic design, UX, and the like. But, what if we could apply design thinking to some of the bigger environmental and social issues facing the planet?

Today’s guest is Katie Patrick. She’s an environmental engineer who has initiated the “Fitbit for the planet” movement to help quantify the effects of our everyday actions. She’s here to share insights from her book How To Save The World.
