Talk - together with Aran Baker

'Designing Our Future Today: Service Design at the Front Lines of Climate Resilience'


Climate change poses unprecedented challenges to our social and ecological systems, calling us to design the future world we need today. We will use case studies to demonstrate how service design is uniquely suited to tackle the complexity of the climate crisis and share examples of tools and methods designers can use for climate mitigation and adaptation. Regenerative, transformative, and justice-centered principles for designing for climate resilience will ground our conversation.



In addition, Emily Wright will facilitate one of our pre-conference events on October 9, 2019 together with Aran Baker and Rachel Hollowgrass:


'From Awareness to Action: Approaches to Service Design for People and Planet'
