We are living in urgent times. Where there is crisis there is also opportunity. As we rethink the systems that shape and govern our lives and how they might be fit for purpose, design can help imagine and create new realities. It can help government address issues with a people-centered approach, to be responsive, efficient and responsible. Design in partnership with government can be a powerful agent of positive change. In this session, Sandy Speicher, Chief Executive Officer of one of the world’s leading design firms IDEO, and Paul Bennet, Chief Creative Officer at IDEO, will share their insights on the role design can play in the future of government.
