I believe, that as a designer we have the responsibility to reduce our ecological impact as a society. It is my aim to create experiences which make it easy for people to live without damaging the environment. A strong concept based on research and with humans in the focus has the potential to change mass behaviour. To be able to create a concept like this, I want to advance my design thinking, my understanding of human motivation and my executional skills in user experience. My final year concept is about my passion for travelling, design and environment mixed up with my curiosity for future technology.
