From a spark of awareness to a series of actions, where our behaviour is gradually formed over time until it becomes part of the routine. It becomes our “always”. Likewise, it starts with a thought or an idea to make a positive impact on the environment.
The ‘always’ exhibition explores sustainability beyond the material level from a new perspective, that can also be escalated to the spiritual, cultural and heritage level of discussion. Through visiting the exhibition and participating a series of themed free-of-charge activities.
Visitors may appreciate our local creative power and know how design inspires a continuous innovation process, ensuring the sustainable and prosperous development of the city.
2023.1.7【always】“Story of a Garbage Planet” Parents & Kids Workshop
Once upon a time, there were great mountains, ocean, beautiful flowers and trees in the planet. However, because of the ignorant human being, the nature gradually turned into a concrete jungle……
In fact, most of the garbage is diamond in the rough. If we focus more on reusing the old materials and extending the life of the old stuff, we can definitely contribute more to reducing the wastage.
In Design Spectrum’s ‘Story of a Garbage Planet’ workshop, we used a lot of daily utensils or disposable packaging to create new things. The workshop can stimulate the participating kids’ observation and imagination. It also guides the kids to a3R and environmentally friendly practice.
