Design: Now, More Than Ever

RSA Event

  • Public services
  • Social innovation

 

The world is facing urgent challenges – and design can help us solve them.

Carrie Bishop is a director at FutureGov, the digital and design company for public services, where she works on projects focused on using social technologies for better collaboration, open innovation and organisational change.

To celebrate the launch of the 2016/17 Student Design Award briefs, Carrie shares her thoughts on why we need design now more than ever as a tool for tackling global problems.

The RSA Student Design Awards challenges emerging designers to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking. Our goal is to empower a generation of savvy, employable designers who understand the potential of design to benefit society, and we do this by running an annual Awards programme that challenges students and recent graduates to think differently about design, through tackling briefs focused on real-world problems.

 

The event will be followed by a drinks reception in the RSA’s Benjamin Franklin Room.
