Design Impact: Transformation at the Intersection of Climate Change, Equity, and Health
Thursday, September 24, 2020
9:00am - 2:00pm
Webinar via Zoom
Climate change, structural racism and Covid-19 have collided with propulsive force, exposing an existing landscape of inequity that demands a full reckoning - making plain what we have missed and who we have failed to serve. To create systemic change, we must develop fundamentally new design approaches that replace myopic point solutions with transformational systems that can drive change at the scale that our time demands.
Join us on September 24th, 2020 for our inaugural event. Sessions include:
Session 1: Health - Slum Upgrading and the City: Policies, Design and Transformation 9:00 - 10:30am EST
Session 2: Climate Change - Regenerative Design for Radical Sustainability 10:40 - 12:10pm EST
Session 3: Equity - The Revolution Will Be Designed 12:20 - 2:00pm EST
The event will bring together an outstanding roster of global leaders to share their work and vision, challenging us as a global community to use design as a tool for actionable, transformative change and healing. The event is free and open to all. Visit the registration link below for more information on the event.
