Ignite Conversation: Design Innovation Network Events

Posted on: 15/08/2022

Design offers new perspectives and insights. It can help uncover new opportunities as well as manage uncertainty and complexity.

These Ignite Conversation online events provide a space to deep-dive into the opportunities for design in specific sectors and technology areas and around the big challenges facing society.

Our view of design is expansive and inclusive. Good or bad, design is everywhere. Our mission is to drive positive change by encouraging respectful systems-aware, planet-focused and people sensitive innovation.

From Space to Services; Inclusion to intelligent Systems – each week our panel of designers and challenge holders will discuss the role of design in it delivering better innovation outcomes.
