The Alumni Council of the Harvard Graduate School of Design Virtual Event
Design Impact Vol. 4: Regeneration: Design Strategies for a Resilient Future
March 31, 2021, 7:00 AM–10:00 AM
The event is free and open to all. Please register here.
Design Impact is a global design leadership speaker series sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Design Alumni Council. These virtual events bring together outstanding rosters of global leaders to share their work and vision, challenging us as a global community to use design as a tool for actionable, transformative change, and healing. This ongoing series is free and open to all.
This panel will explore the potential for regenerative practices to shift our cultural, economic, social, and ecological drivers for new whole systems design. Regionally driven and specific to the geological, climactic, historical and cultural traditions of place, regenerative initiatives advocate low-impact, healing and high-quality lifestyles, integrating modern clean and renewable technologies with indigenous wisdom. They emphasize community building, inclusiveness, and foster a relational perspective with ecosystems that is inspired by a reverence for the wisdom inherent in nature.
Sessions address topics of regional as well as global relevance and focus on:
• Session 1: Regeneration: A Paradigm Shift (10:15 – 11:30AM EDT)
• Session 2: Regenerative Design: Systems, Technologies and Strategies (11:30AM – 12:55PM EDT)
