Resilio Studio has lead a range of papers at AUT in the fields of design, sustainability and social innovation. In recent years Resilio has worked in collaboration with Lisa McEwan to develop and deliver the curriculum for the Design for Sustainability Minor, offered to all students in the school of Art and Design as part of the AUT MESH programme. This year, as part of the final-year curriculum, Resilio has been supervising students through applied projects, working in collaboration with The Southern Initiative (Auckland Council) and community stakeholders in a co-design process aimed at creating positive social and environmental change in South Auckland. This year’s applied projects range from developing a closed-loop system for organic waste cycling at Middlemore Hospital; engaging south Auckland youth through mobile / pop-up makerspaces; working with the Oceania Career Academy to integrate design thinking and creativity into their curriculum and workshop; and collaborating with the Cook Island Development Agency New Zealand (CIDANZ) and the Old School Reserve Garden Trust to explore how the two organisations might co-create shared initiatives for the site they share.
