Sustainable development can better enable us to have the same quality of life, or a more convenient life , but consumes less energy.”

The summit explored the prospects of sustainable design, fully analyzing the opportunities and challenges of the design industry now and in the future under the rapid development of high technology. 


In the future, Cathy Huang will continue to work together with more design agencies to promote the development of service design to new levels , and do support to grow together with dynamic energy and new vitality.
