According to the long-standing EPI-ranking 2015 by Yale University, Switzerland is the planet’s most environmental-friendly country. However, since the late 1960ies, Switzerland remains at an average 5.0 gha (global hectares) eco-footprint while it possesses a biocapacity of only 1.2 gha. Also, the average Swiss citizen’s lifestyle requires now 3.3 planets. Humanity has been tackling sustainability since the 1970ies, and this is all we have achieved? Is there a better way to secure human survival on this planet? The KISDtalk by Pius Leuba dit Galland introduces a next-generation approach to sustainability. Biomimicry learns from and emulates nature’s strategies to create more sustainable human artifacts, processes, and systems.
The KISDtalk will be in English language.

The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give open space for an open-minded and profound analysis of current and future issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The KISDtalks always take place on Tuesday at 5.30 pm. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
