Sustainable solutions

We like to connect great thinkers with the best makers. Not for fun, but to develop collaborative and innovative solutions with a sustainable and social impact.

Thinking & Making. If done separately, it rarely results in something remarkable, but if done together, one can create an impact. At MAD, we like creating an impact.

So, we like to connect great thinkers with the best makers. Not for fun, but to develop collaborative and innovative solutions with a sustainable and social impact.

Why?

  • Because we want to promote good practices focusing on a sustainable approach in the production of goods and services.
  • Because we want to create sustainable connections by offering creative and production skills (our residents are the perfect thinkers ‘and makers)
  • Because we want to create social impact.
  • Because we want to create collaborations between public authorities, universities and private companies and designers to develop sustainable solutions
  • Because we want to connect Brussels social and cultural stakeholders working on social issues with designers, residents and non-residents to create sustainable solutions with a social impact.
  • Because we want to promote citizen participation and design thinking processes.

But what do you want?
Think & Make. Sustainable.

"Given the current environmental urgency, environmental concerns should no longer be an argument for differentiation, ecodesign should become design."
Yasmina Toussin, Ecodesign Expert 

Eco is everywhere today. Just like the terms green, local, sustainable and slow, it’s a very fashionable word. But what lies behind this fancy concept? And how do you approach and incorporate the eco mindset and challenges as a (product, service or fashion) designer?

How to really make a difference?
Well, instead of yet another essay about the eco-sustainability, here are three examples of how we deal with eco at MAD. You’ll notice that eco is never easy, sometimes fun and always together! Just like life!
