Design helps us see things that do not exist. This is especially important in our times of unprecedented change.
In his new book, Designing Our Way to a Better World, Tom Fisher presents a thought-provoking perspective on how design can help us address our society’s most challenging issues, including those related to education, public health and politics. He will illustrate how design can be a force in helping us age well.
“[Design thinking] provides not just a useful and rigorous process for coming up with creative ideas but also a synthesizing, holistic way of looking at the world around us, making connections and seeing relationships among things we often treat as separate and distinct.”
We are honored to have Fisher, a sought-after author and national speaker, for this exciting forum. Join us!
