The Brazilian Symposium on Sustainable Design (SBDS) and the International Symposium on Sustainable Design (ISSD) occur together every two years since 2007. The goal is to gather researchers, students and design professionals, as well as representatives of the productive and governmental sector, seeking to discuss the current situation and the future of design in regards to various aspects related to the sustainable development.

The first event took place in Curitiba-PR in 2007, organized by the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR). The second edition took place in 2009 in São Paulo-SP, organized by Anhembi Morumbi University. In 2011, the event took place in Recife-PE, organized by the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). In 2013, it was jointly organized in Porto Alegre-RS by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), University of Vale do Rio dos Sinos (Unisinos) and Ritter dos Reis University Center (UniRitter). In 2015, only the national version (SBDS) occurred in Rio de Janeiro-RJ, organized by the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio).

In 2017, in its sixth edition and celebrating its 10th anniversary, the symposium will be held in Belo Horizonte-MG by the Built Environment and Sustainable Heritage Postgraduate Program and by the Department of Technology of Architecture and Urbanism of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG).

The celebration of the 90th anniversary of UFMG will be part of the event.
