Finland-Asia Network for Sustainable Experience Design Education (SEDE-FAN)

Sustainable consumption and production promote resource and energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure and access to a better quality of life toward building of a sustainable economy that works for both people and planet. People, the most critical stakeholder of a sustainable economy, experience various consumption practices in their everyday life and in their job activities as consumers, users and
customers. The key nature of experiences is that every consumer and user make their own experiences
and diverse values are elucidated through these experiences. It is highly desirable to design diverse
services to support sustainable consumption experiences.
