Interview with Tom Sanders founder of the Early Warning Scan.
During Dutch Design Week, there is much to see and experience, but for the most current solutions to pressing issues, you can go to World Design Embassies. Here, various stakeholders collaborate on an equal footing on complex societal issues. Open coalitions are formed to link the power of design to national transitions. The focus is on realizing missions around themes such as health, safety, mobility, sustainability, and inclusivity.
In this list, we highlight one of World Design Embassies each time with some projects.
How can we create livable cities together? How can we ensure that people remain curious about their surroundings and actively explore? And what role can artificial intelligence play in engaging residents in the development of their living environment? Read more here.
Stadsvisioenen, led by Jorrit van der Heide, explores the question of how we as a society can strive for a more sustainable, inclusive and socially inclusive living environment. This project approaches this challenge from the perspective of "design for societal transformation" and highlights the need to view the shape and values of our habitat in an innovative way.
This initiative is a response to a society in which the views of experts and policy makers guide urban development. In contrast to this common practice, City Visions recognizes the growing importance of residents' involvement in shaping their own living environment.
City Visions allows residents to explore, share and discuss their ideas and opinions about the city. Using artificial intelligence, they generate fictional stories of the future, resulting in a more diverse and inclusive dialogue about the development of urban areas. By embracing a citizen-centric approach, City Visions strives to promote a lifestyle that benefits both people and the planet.
