Design in an Age of Crisis: Rethinking Health and Society

Design in an Age of Crisis is a new mini-series on the Undercurrents podcast feed.

Great design thinking can play a major role in improving our health and wellbeing, by strengthening our resilience to illness, and to major pandemics, like COVID-19. It can also be focused on helping the most marginalized members of the society.

In this episode, Professor Dame Sally Davies, Kelly Doran and Charlene Prempeh discuss how design can empower marginalised groups within society, and improve health and social care. 

Design In An Age Of Crisis is a global open call from the London Design Biennale and Chatham House. The open call is looking for radical and rapid responses, in any format, to problems facing humanity across four briefs: Health, Environment, Work and Society. Read the briefs and submit your radical design thinking by 31 August 2020.
