What Design Can Do showcases design as a catalyst of change and renewal and promotes it as a way of addressing the societal questions of our time. The story is told through the annual conference in Amsterdam, additional conferences in other parts of the world, the worldwide What Design Can Do Challenge, as well as our own publications and the WDCD blog.
What Design Can Do was initiated in 2011 to present best practices and visions, to provoke discussion and to facilitate exchange between disciplines. Why? To let the public discover what design is capable of. To call on designers to stand up, take responsibility and consider the pressing issues of our time. WDCD’s next event is WDCD Live Amsterdam 2016 on 30 June and 1 July.
I’m a keynote speaker on June 30th. My reading is called salty water, sweet city.
