Description

Design on show: Design thinking for change

In partnership with UNSW Art and Design, join Professor of Design, Cameron Tonkinwise, in a talk and Q&A. Discussing how design thinking influences social evolution, he advocates for a seismic shift in structural change.

As part of our Design on Show series, this big thinker reframes problem-solving and reimagines value propositions. We look into how innovation can help us solve persisting societal issues in order to thrive.

Cameron outlines the ways in which the next generation of design thinking strategies can pave the way for lasting structural change. Through social initiatives and start-ups, we look at how organisations and communities can utilise systems thinking, service design and transition management to take a big step forward.

Cameron Tonkinwise

Currently Professor of Design at University of NSW Art and Design, he held previous positions at Carnegie Mellon University, Parsons School for Design and the Tishman Environment and Design Centre. Cameron explores how separating use and ownership can lead to advanced social sustainability. Concentrating on critical practice-based design research and transition design, he advocates for a more sustainable future through structural change.
