Chapter events - United States

Learn how Service Design can help us adapt to new realities.

Event Description

We know how insightful interviews with extreme users and observations of extreme situations are. Eight months of war taught us some lessons, and I want to share them with you.

I know you do not want to hear sad stories about human suffering. Don’t worry. I promise to present an optimistic story about the resilience and creativity of people from Ukraine and the world.

Through the prism of service design, you’ll learn how Ukrainian businesses adapt to new realities, how to survey people beyond the frontline, and how human needs evolve in crazy times.
