Learning objectives

Rethinking design and production in terms of the hydric footprint is the theme of this unique training. Rianne Makkink’s WaterSchool reimagines the economic and holistic model.

At the end of the training, the participant will have assimilated:

  • Understanding the concept of the hybrid footprint and awareness of its impact on our environment
  • Reflection on food production and consumption
  • Consideration of water issues within the household
  • Designing containers for a low hybrid footprint

Content of the program

Rethinking design and production in The WaterSchool, a self-initiated project by Studio Makkink & Bey, is a speculative school designed and organized around water as an essential material, subject, and social-political phenomenon.

While the need to reduce our carbon footprint is widely acknowledged, the equally urgent need to reduce our water footprint is often overlooked. Recent research has shown that approximately 27% of humanity’s water footprint is linked to animal product production (Mekonnen and Hoekstra, 2011). Only 4% of humanity’s water footprint is associated with household water consumption.

To address our water footprint, a critical examination of our diet is more impactful than focusing solely on water consumption in the kitchen, bathroom, and garden.

After researching the water footprint of specific local ingredients from the  region (already a low water footprint!) we will rethink a menu out of it and design and shape vessels, containers, pans,  which relate to the low water footprint menu. 

Rianne Makkink’s WaterSchool reimagines the economic model. At the end of the training, the participant will have assimilated: - Understanding the concept of the hybrid footprint and awareness of its impact on our environment - Reflection on food production and consumption. - Consideration of water issues within the household -Designing containers for a low hybrid footprint
