NODUS – Sustainable Design Research Group
TRANSDISCIPLINARY DESIGN RESEARCH FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURES
NODUS researchers focus on a diversity of empirical contexts including self-organised communities, urban, business, provisional systems such as energy, water, food and transport, and collaborate with a variety of stakeholders such as businesses, non-governmental organisations, policy makers, activists, and local and international academics from other research groups and organisations.
NODUS research group supports sustainability education through the interdisciplinary Creative Sustainability Masters’ programme at Aalto University.
The NODUS research group holds regular NODUSTalks at the Helsinki Design Museum. These bring together researchers and practitioners on topics relevant to design and sustainability with the aim of contributing to public debate on how human societies can mitigate further environmental and societal damage and adapt to the already locked-in impacts of the damage that has been caused. Transformation, resilience and justice are the underlying three foundation stones for the discussions facilitated during these talks.
