Upcycle Movement: New Point of View From Japan

How might we design culture for climate change? One of the unique answers is "Upcycle.” Yuko Shiomaki has produced several films focusing on an artist in Japan, Fuyuki Shimazu. Fuyuki is a cardboard picker and artist, creates wallets made from used cardboard. In this session, Yuko will share the concept of upcycling which is the mind beyond recycling or re-use.
