2017 THEME :
DESIGN FOR SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

 

 

Those with positive influence understand the power of relationships, connection, and engaging with the world openly. They not only obtain amazing results in their work, but their process of obtaining these results, how they operate in life, is inspiring and uplifting.

The intention of the 2017 topic Design for Social Engagement is to enable different perspectives and approaches to how we make a difference in the world. We are interested in the stories from your professional practice and beyond. We would like you to focus your talk on your experiences, social engagement, how you have utilised different approaches, tools, frameworks and mechanisms to capture and demonstrate social value and social impact in your practice.
