Workshop together with Mark Kuznicki
'Designing a Purpose-Driven, Circular Economy'
Global trends point to a growing need for change in how we create value. We have entered the anthropocene - and with this new epoch, there are calls to design a circular economy and for business to focus on purpose as the path to long-term value creation. This workshop offers a provocative exploration sharing emerging practices across multiple disciplines of design - product and service design, organizational design, and systemic design - that may provide pathways for this transition.
