Nature has no concept of waste. Outputs from each and every part of the complex natural system serve as a resource for another. Waste is a unique characteristic of human enterprise, and stems from the limitations in our understanding of the inseparable interconnections between our actions and their impact. ‘GD Goenka University School of Fashion & Design’s annual conference ‘CODE’, explores the role of design as a catalyst and partner to approach the issues of turning waste into resource—whether it is from the perspective of resources, processes, or energy.
