What role can design play in today’s turbulent times?
As our society goes through changes, design can play a crucial role: How design can support governments in designing efficient and human-centred public policies, how the value of design can be increased and articulated at the strategic level, and how the impact of design can be measured?
On 15 October 2020, The Swiss Design Association proposes to the design experts and practitioners from Switzerland and abroad to discuss these topics and and open up perspectives. The event will be hybrid: the sessions will be taking place in the auditorium of the School of Design in Bern and will be live streamed.
