Better World By Design Conference in Providence, Oct 2-4
Last year, I attended the Better World By Design conference in Providence, organized and hosted by students from Brown and RISD. Last year’s speakers ranged from Architecture for Humanity’s Cameron Sinclair to Paul Polak, Jocelyn Wyatt of IDEO, and other high-caliber design thinkers. The premise of the conference is clear: let’s work as designers to make the world better, rather then to pollute it with the unnecessary. This year’s conference, which runs from October 2-4, has a new roster of keynote speakers including Kigge Hvid of INDEX, Nathan Shedroff from CCA’s Design MBA program, and Michael Braungart of McDonough/Braungart Design Chemistry. Hope to see you there for an inspiring 3 days of design that can change the world. Registration is now open online here.
