– Meet international young people working in design research and practice!


Speakers are invited to give dynamic, short talks (7 min) with the help of multimedia (e.g. video, images, etc). The talk should address the following points:

– What is design for you?
– What is your vision for the future of design?
– What is your coolest project (past / current / future dream project) that illustrates this vision?
– How will your vision contribute to the future of design research and/or practice?
