About the public lecture

Humanity has designed ever since the very first day it picked up a stick and shaped it into a tool.

Design today is about new products, services and operational models. It has created preferred and desirable solutions and value on multiple levels for users, organisations, the ecosystem and society at large. It has linked human creativity to new, useful and diffusible ideas, enabling innovation and potential well-being for many.

Design helps to create the future, and thus to see, acknowledge and implement the changes needed to get there.
