Water management skills in the process of traditional village construction carry the wisdom and experience of ancient Chinese sages in understanding and utilizing nature, and are also an important manifestation of the formation and development of Chinese traditional water management culture. Taking Shen'ao Village in Western Zhejiang as a typical case, this paper focuses on how ancient sages created a unique water man agement system in Shen'ao Village based on a variety of water management forms through literature research and field investigation, and analyzes and studies the water management system in Shen'ao Village from four aspects of energy conservation, environment protection, health and comfort, and flexibility and long-term effectiveness, respectively, to explore the sustainable ecological concept behind the water management system. Through the study on the sustainability of the water management system in Shen'ao Village, excellent water management techniques and practical ideas are deeply excavated and drawn on, which can provide useful reference for the sustainable development of new rural construction in China.

Climate change is not only an issue relating to the environment but also the structure of our society. This paper is to discuss a new model of field study to support design to address climate change. The article uses a field study performed in China by an European design school as an example to explain the new model in more detail. This model has three main characteristics: this field study is an explorative process for design with a flexible frame; this field study is a transdisciplinary approach, and the process is an intercultural process. The transdisciplinary approach could provide a holistic solution to form the ‘new’ living. The team members from different cultures could make the process easier to sense the alternative living model and nurture a collective global vision of sustainable development. To conclude, the paper explore how an explorative, transdisciplinary.

With the development of digital learning, The local children are the "digital aborigines" of handicraft inheritance, representing the latest strength of culture. Nevertheless, traditional learning styles cannot stimulate local children’s interests. Our team takes serious game as a new way of learning crafts and proposes a serious game design model. The purpose of the serious game is to help left-behind children in Huayao area to learn traditional handicrafts. According to Johan Huizinga's Magic Circle theory, this game can help the rural children to learn their national culture, improving the identity of the rural children to their national culture by the elements in the game world. Taking the "control classroom" as a test. Through the game, the local children's learning behavior which in the game world can be transferred to real world, which can help the inheritance of traditional crafts.

Over the past two hundred years of the human industrial revolution, we have created an unimaginable material world and have achieved a brilliant success. But at the same time, we are consuming the resources of the earth. Because of the wide use of plastic materials since the 1950s, man-made and synthetic materials occupy a dominant position in the design and product areas. The continuous development and use of materials is like a double-edged sword, which leads us to prosperity and destruction.

Take “Reconstituting-Plan” project of the team as an example to discuss the reorganization and redesign of materials. Rethink people's habits of creating and using materials and  try to turn existing waste into raw materials. On the one hand, this project actively turn rubbish into new products; on the other hand, it try to make Bio Plastic using new formula and kitchen waste. The overall method and model are introduced, compare the performance characteristics of new materials and traditional materials through material recombination, remade, analysis and comparison  designing experiments.

Materials are the foundation of design creation and the key to achieve ecological product design. Ecological and sustainable product design is inseparable from the design of ecological materials and interdisciplinary cooperation.

In the first half of 2018, the total retail sales of consumer goods in China reached 18 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 9.4%. In addition to what we often call the concept of consumption upgrades, the trading of idle goods is also highly anticipated. Reasonable reuse or sharing of old things reflects the concept of sustainable development. The article aims to study how to use commercial services to make old and more rational and effective use of sustainable development. Realizing the rapid circulation of information and funds in the secondary market, but the market is still inactive. The article studies consumer psychology and summarizes the problems of the network idle trading platform, compares and studies the advantages and disadvantages of the domestic and international flea market business models. Finally, a business model and service system for the sale of new used old goods with integrated physical stores was proposed.

While there are a few Europe-wide Higher Education courses and/or programmes of study in social design and innovation at national levels, efforts to upscale them to a wider cross-national audience are lagging behind. If we are to develop a disciplinary benchmark that transcends national boundaries and achieve a wider consensus on the disciplinary boundaries thus providing for a level of comparability across national boundaries, the considerations and challenges confronting this upscaling, need to be addressed. This paper will elaborate on

this issue drawing from a combination of European policy documents and the research of the authors in the area of social design and innovation. The identification of some challenges confronting upscaling will provide a stepping stone for future investigations towards cross-national collaborations in the areas of social design, social innovation, and sustainability for all.

Despite the recovery of the boating industry today, the crisis in the field sector has brought with it a great amount of boats and related obsolete production equipment (Marsh, 2013). The Glebanite® project aims to create a possibility for all these products considered waste, giving a clear answer to the problem of their disposal, with particular attention to fiber-reinforced composite materials. The project prsented aims to trigger a Circular Economy process for the generation of a new recycled and re-processable materials and for a new economy to support recreational boating.

The project has as its starting point the engineering and systemization of the Glebanite material (secondary raw material derived from GRPs waste) for an innovative production strategy of nautical shipbuilding equipment through the use of CNC machine. The project thus straddles the main areas of Eco-Industry, Advanced Manufacturing and Sustainable Mobility.

Fashion is one of the most relevant phenomena to describe contemporary cultures and societies (Fioraai, 2006; Bertola, 2018). Despite this, fashion has always been a marginal topic within the design scientific debate. Fashion design education has been a small niche within the whole academic system. Nowadays, this exile, that could be considered both forced or voluntary, is ending. Fashion is strong of its recognized impact on global economies, society, culture, and is conscious of the need for it to engage, as for all other sectors, in guiding a coherent transition of the surrounding world towards a more sustainable paradigm. In view of this, this exploratory paper, developed within the scope of the author’s doctoral research, present an initial analysis of the current state of the art in practices across Europe, mapping existing and emerging practices within university level institution and industry, to identify approaches and practices that could be amplified, and implemented to contribute to a sustainable paradigm for fashion design education.
