The event ‘In a Planet of Our Own’ is scheduled to be held at Mumbai, India from 3rd to 7th of November 2009 and is being hosted by the Industrial Design Centre (IDC), at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, Mumbai.

This international event is aimed at creating design awareness on sustainability and simultaneously offers a platform for interaction for the design community. The events are centered around the interests of students, educationists, practicing professional designers and sustainability interest groups.

The event has been designed to be lively, interactive and thought provoking and will provide great opportunity to converse with grandmasters of design, interact with thought leaders and listen to visions by outstanding speakers.
