Cameron Tonkinwise on Service Design for Creative Communities

Open Government Melbourne is thrilled to host an evening with Cameron Tonkinwise, one of the world's foremost thinkers on service design for sustainability and the sharing economy.

Cameron will discuss his work in service design and sustainable urban social innovation through the Amplify Project.

Creative Communities around the world aren't waiting for governments and businesses anymore. They are creating more sustainable ways of living and working for themselves. How can we find, improve, and spread community-based solutions for sustainability?

Cameron's Bio
Cameron Tonkinwise is the outgoing Associate Dean for Sustainability at Parsons The New School for Design New York, USA. From August 1st, Cameron will be the Director of Design Studies at Carnegie Mellon University and Chair of the School’s Doctoral Studies Committee.

His research and professional activities integrate the philosophy of design with a concern for sustainability. Cameron's work focuses on the design of commercial and nonmarket systems for shared product use, exploring how the emerging discipline of service design might facilitate the development of less-material-dependent economies. In his current research, Tonkinwise is investigating perceptions of convenience and autonomy in shifts from “ownership” to “usership.”

    Really great to see design making inroads here - Cameron is a great advocate of its value and agency - and if you're interested in what he's got to say, please come along to the DESIS-lab Melbourne event that's happening at RMIT next day (sorry for cross promotion)!
