What can design do to help solve social issues?
What can design do to help achieve SDGs?
This is a 2-day design creation workshop to be held simultaneously and on multiple occasions throughout the world to address the resolution of social issue Fukuoka will face in 2030, based on the 17 sustainable development goals established by the UN, or SDGs.
Utilizing techniques such as the IoT (Internet of Things) and digital fabrication for the benefit of our future society, our diverse group of participants will create a design of our future in the year 2030 in which there are job opportunities for all.
We eagerly await applications from designers, engineers, programmers, concepters, and researchers who want to challenge themselves to solve the world’s problems.
Let’s design 2030 together!
