what design can do 2012

attended the amazing what design can do conference at the beautiful stadsschouwburg in amsterdam last week. amazingly inspiring conference, wonderful people to meet, quite a few great speakers, fun and interactive breakout sessions, absolutely smooth organization, and a pretty good afterparty in the end!
i made a storify from the #WDCD tweets, reflecting my personal view on the conference!

word. very close in spirit to one of my early posts.

nice collection of inspirational quotes by Nuno Filipe Miranda!

i may have posted this video a while back, if you’re short on time you can check out the trailer. the green movement needs more influencers! transforming into a sustainable future will also need a shift in the culture that surrounds us, it needs to become part of that which produces meaning among our society.

on october 7, the influencer conference is coming to berlin (fb event). the conference took place for the first time in new york last year and “seeks to identify, understand and support influencer culture globally.” this year, it is also happening in berlin and london and i’m very happy to be part of this conference, since it looks like it’s exactly down my alley! the overarching theme for berlin is ‘reaching new audiences’ and the sessions are called: changing to green, making contributions and rebranding the arts. the ‘new by deconstruction’ workshop also looks exciting.

the conference venue is in west berlin, smack down in the ‘city’ – where you can really feel the difference to east berlin. the place is called ’bikini berlin’ and it’s directly at breitscheidplatz where we did the silent climate parade last weekend.

looking forward to engaging conversations with inspiring people next week!
