What Design Can Do

Annual international conference about the impact of design

What Design Can Do is an two-day event for design professionals, company leaders and government officials. The conference is a cross-over between design disciplines – from architecture to product design, from graphic design to fashion design – as solutions for today’s challenges generally demand a multi-disciplinary approach. The event is initiated by designers who feel the responsibility to make their profession useful for society and want to reflect on this with fellow designers and other professionals.
