About the event:
In times of trauma society's limits are pushed to extreme measures and desires to grow or build a better world. To not only master but thrive in this new world, we as human beings are expected to learn from our mistakes and collectively build resilience. What if design could play a key role in building resilience? As Service Designers we took on this challenge and bundled our creativity, optimism and perseverance to re imagine our current reality by growing a new pliable world. Join our symposium with the award-winning author and director of Replenish Earth, Dr. Tia Kansara. With her recent, published book Replenish, she will share her perspective and experience of performing her own practices in developing the future vision of our planet. Followed by a discussion with Service Design students whose final projects rediscover resilience in themes of wellbeing, sustainability, lifestyle and wellness. If you are interested and want to learn more… Join us: Wednesday, 30th of June, 13.00pm - 14.30pm UK time
