*The LeNS World Distributed Conference 3*

*Designing Sustainability for All*

3-5 April 2019, Mexico City-Curitiba-Cape Town-Bangalore-Beijing-Milan

-------------------------

*Designing Sustainability for All* is the 3rd LeNS International
Conference: a unique distributed worldwide event, for the first time held
in 6 venues simultaneously.

The Conference will be hosted by *Mexico City* (Mexico), *Curitiba*
 (Brasil), *Cape Town* (South Africa), *Bangalore* (India), *Beijing* (China)
and *Milan* (Italy). The conference will be held for 3 days (3-5 April
2019), and in each of the 6 venues it will be possible to listen to any of
the presentations happening in the other ones.

*Designing sustainability for All *envisions a cosmopolitan approach by
collecting and sharing contributions from and for *all of the contexts*:
low, middle and high-income ones, from north, south, west and east of the
world.

*Designing sustainability for All* is a call for contributions and actions
to the *whole world design community*, i.e. design researchers, design
educators and design practitioners.

The LeNS Conference is in fact one of the largest design international
conferences for lecturers, researchers, professionals and relevant
institutions and organizations. It has become a reference event where
experts from all over the world get together to present and share their
knowledge, projects, tools and visions to diffuse sustainability for all.

LeNS is more than a conference. It is a meeting point for those who want to
learn and share about design for sustainability with a *multicultural, open
and copyleft ethos*. LeNS vision is to foster *a new generation of
designers* (and design educators and researchers) capable to effectively
face the challenge to envision, design and contribute to the transition
towards the sustainable world for all.

*AIM*

The conference aims to be both visionary and pragmatic, and to stimulate
new ways of thinking. The scope is to share the latest knowledge and
experiences around the concept of *sustainability for all*. This will be
achieved through cross-fertilizing a wide range of disciplines:
predominantly design, but even engineering, economy, policy-making and
sociology.

*WHO SHOULD ATTEND*

The conference is targeted at academics, researchers and educators, as well
as designers, engineers, businessmen, economists, policy-makers,
representatives from governmental and non-governmental organizations. The
event is envisaged as an interdisciplinary arena asking to all stakeholders
to adopt the ethos of promoting all possible cross-fertilizing synergies
and open learning-by-sharing processes. The conference will create a
vibrant and forward-thinking environment, inviting to diffuse new knowledge
and share practices and experiences in the ever-increasing need to enable
access to sustainability for all.



*CALL FOR PAPER*
