About the event:

How can design ways of thinking and doing contribute to rethink policy making and conventional ideas of governance?

This evening we want to explore the role designers can play in guiding the transition of our public institutions towards more adaptive configurations, better able to respond to the changing needs of society and the controversies new technologies keep generating.

What we aim for is not only a discussion about how to possibly improve governance and its services, but about what design tools and approaches might be necessary today to empower civic action, engage citizens around matters of public concerns and together shape our future.
