Symposium: Impact Design Summit: The Practice of Impact Design

October 28, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$15

From urbanization and climate change, to displacement and social equity, some of this century’s most important issues are attracting design professionals with a desire to leverage their training and experience to create social changes. The two-day Impact Design Summit will explore how designers can affect society by creating economic, environmental, educational, social health impacts, and how design can be the driver for positive systemic change.

Panel discussions with seasoned practitioners address critical areas of practical concern in the field of impact design, such as challenges of staffing, financing, and evaluating social impact design practices, as well as potential solutions to those challenges. The symposium will also highlight how to disseminate knowledge and best practices in social impact design within and beyond the social impact.
