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 Design Impact: Transformation at the Intersection of Climate Change, Equity and Health, a global design summit sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Design Alumni Council. 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.
