o2 global network
For Sustainable and Regenerative Design
The o2 Global Network on Sustainable Design was established in 1988 by a group of designers to Inspire, Inform, and Connect people interested in Design for Sustainability.
More than three decades later, as Sustainability has evolved to Circularity and Regeneration, the o2 Global Network demonstrates that design plays a critical role in shaping and healing a world that supports life in all its forms.
Now, more than ever, it is critical to Act.
Join the o2 Global Network and
Inspire, Inform, Connect and Act together for real change!
Why is o2 here?
o2 is here to actively create global Net-Zero transformation by 2050 or earlier.
o2 exists ultimately to reimagine, reconnect, and redesign our human relationship with
Earth's living and non-living systems.
Design the future!
The power of imagination. The video below taken an o2 event held in Rotterdam in 1993 illustrates some remarkable ideas and predictions, many - like the sharing economy, collaborative tablet computers and voice controlled internet searches - are an everyday part of life today.
o2 network members
O2 Members are as diverse and interesting as the many design roles they represent.
We share a common courage to break boundaries, forge new relationships and
design 'from the hip'!
