Chapter events - Portugal

Join us to commemorate Service Design Day with us: the time for doing good, and giving back is now!!

About this Event

More and more we as individuals, citizens and professionals question if the current way of doing things is the right one, not only for us but also for our entire planet.

New models - Stakeholder Capitalism, the Circular Economy and Doughnut Economics- are getting people’s attention for being more beneficial for us all. But, as the debate rages on, what role can Design play to help?

In this 90-minutes Webinar our stellar Panel will discuss precisely that, and many other topics for the purpose of discovering how Design can play a leading role in the pursuit of Good Growth.

Join us in this discussion next June 4, at 5pm Lisbon time. Register to commemorate Service Design Day with us: the time for doing good, and giving back is now!

From the clothes we wear to the buildings we live and work in, to systems that deliver food and mobility - all has been designed and is either fit for a model that is regenerative and can work in the long-term, or for a linear and extractive model. Simon is passionate about combining design thinking with a systems perspective to help us re-imagine and re-design for a circular economy. He has led the development of the Circular Design Guide in collaboration with IDEO.
