What Design Can Do? Save the World!

What Design Can Do?  Save the World!

De second edition of the Amsterdam conference What Design Can Do, in May 2012, brought bright minds from all over the world together to investigate what design can do to address the world’s truly pressing problems. I wrote a roundup for the magazine Items. ‘The role of the designer is somewhere between compassion and expertise.’
