For 10 days, attendees came together to transcend silos, foster cooperation and enhance professional development. More than a mere celebration of design, the summit demonstrated the tremendous power of design to create viable solutions, as attendees will collaboratively endeavor to develop and share innovative and practical solutions to global social, economic, cultural and environmental challenges of the 21st century.
These ideas would subsequently be presented to private and public sector decision-makers and the public at large. Exploring the themes, you could find the design of earth, design for participation, design for transformation, design for beauty, design for extremes, and design for sale.
Inside these 6 main themes, you were able to talk about 100 different topics, with 25 keynotes, and 500 speakers. And for us, one of the main subjects that people need to be more aware of its design of earth.
In the midst of the Anthropocene, how can we transform our living environments to respect the capacity of ecosystems and, even more, restore their balance and reveal their potential? Humans are indeed part of nature and, as such, are as fragile as our living environment.
Sometimes people don’t see it, but it’s fundamental to recognize that earth and nature in general, they play a big part of what be build or draw in the design world.
Going beyond short-term, market-driven needs can allow designers to drop conventions, look at their work on a different scale and become agents of change who can generate alternatives to the status quo.
This is one of the many reasons why these summits are so important to attend. They will improve your culture, knowledge, and sustainable way to look at the world we live in.
