Dutch Design Week 2020: Virtual Expert Program on Health and Circular Design Challenges

October 19 @ 8:00 am - October 20 @ 5:00 pm

Netta Kornberg, Knowledge Dissemination Strategist at the Dahdaleh Institute, will participate in the Virtual Expert Program on Health and Circular Design Challenges at Dutch Design Week 2020 (DDW2020).

During DDW2020, the Dutch Design Foundation and will host two sessions bringing together thought leaders from Canada and the Netherlands in Health and the Circular Economy. These sessions are intended to create a solid foundation for future collaboration and knowledge exchange between these two countries. Netta will give a lightning presentation and participate in discussions, peer2peer sessions, and networking.

The Covid-19 pandemic has accentuated the urgency of major social challenges, such as climate change, inequality and poverty. It has compelled us to find ways to relate differently towards each other, the world around us, our health, our data and our government. Our scope has become smaller and more intimate, while the connection with others is further removed than ever before.

The search for a new equilibrium has commenced. A balance in which important values such as intimacy and affection are not to be lost. A challenge that requires knowledge, imaginative power and inventiveness from designers. Deploying optimism and creativity, they come up with new concepts that inspire, conceive wonderment and incite action. Designers show us how we can relate to each other and the world in this new reality. An extensive online program will feature exhibits of high quality future forward design, live streams, video content, DDW talks, virtual parties and more.
