Announcing the theme for the Service Design Global Conference 2021: Taking a Stand

October 21 – 22, 2021 (Online)

Since the success of the first virtual Service Design Global Conference in 2020, our team has been hard at work crafting a theme for this year to resonate with our community around the world remotely. 

Now, after a year of surviving the global pandemic and putting a greater focus on social justice, we know more than ever that the values we embrace and the choices we make define the world we experience. The decisions we make as designers and business leaders have real consequences on people and the planet—both designed and unintended. Whether improving existing services or fostering innovation, we need to be more intentional and aware of the ripple effects we create. 

So, this year at the Service Design Network Global Conference, we ask you to join us in Taking a Stand to impact our organisations and our communities so that we may co-create a better tomorrow. 

Stay tuned for early bird registration opening up in July! Until then, you can subscribe to our Service Design Global Conference 2021 newsletter to stay up-to-date on event announcements.

We look forward to seeing you online soon!
