RGD Webcast: Future by Design – Design for Social Change

June 19, 2012
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Sault College, Room M1030
Sault Ste. Marie, ON

RGD Ontario, in collaboration with the Design Exchange, presents Design for Social Change a panel discussion on the process, potential and power of designing for social change.

With a world in dire need of new ideas and innovative ways of thinking and doing, designers have become more relevant than ever. Design has the ability to connect both economic and social value, resulting in solutions that are not only sustainable, but also culturally relevant as well. Increasingly, designers will be called upon to utilize their broad skill set and deep understanding of communication to redesign the future and a better world.

Join us for a special screening of this discussion as it is broadcast LIVE.Our panel discussion will be preceded by brief presentations of case studies from each of our panelists.
