What do you do when the world is on the brink of social and environmental collapse? As our global environment faces challenges that may have catastrophic consequences, designers and design appear to be either add
ding to the problem or being part of the solution. As people throughout the world struggle for human rights and to satisfy their basic needs, we as designers are faced with a choice: whether to devote our time and talents to the service of those who struggle or to those who do not.
This series of talks asks you to consider the choices you make and the actions you take.
