The COVID-19 pandemic has shed some light on how society’s experience of crises is influenced by general health, wealth, ethnicity, gender, disability, age and surrounding environments.
With so much unconscious or unexpressed bias in design, taking a more humanity-centred and inclusive design approach might help to empower all members of our society – across divides of race, gender, ability and age.
This event is an incredible opportunity to hear from designers and policymakers on how radical design thinking can be focused on supporting the vulnerable and marginalized individuals through more inclusive and just societies.
- How can design and policy work together to reaffirm equality day-to-day?
- How can design thinking better deliver opportunities for underrepresented communities, be it through education, transformation of economic models or radical design ideas?
- How can our cultural spaces be redesigned to build communities while still reflecting their diverse interests?
This event is produced as part of SNF CoLab – our project to share our ideas with you in experimental, collaborative ways – and to learn how you think we can design a better future.
