How collaboration is key to designing a better future
Updated: Nov 15
P4P Chair Baroness Hayman joined the world's leading experts in design and sustainability at the Design for Planet Festival, an annual conference supporting the UK’s nearly 2 million-strong design community to address the climate emergency. The conference was also live-streamed directly to 93 countries attracting a cross-industry audience of 6,000 people.
This year's conference theme – COLLABORATE – explored how if we are to achieve a regenerative world, we must do it together through consumers, working with nature, AI development, building supply chains, cross-industry business ventures and gathering together practices of different disciplines.
Baroness Hayman delivered a keynote address, reflecting on how the climate and nature crisis has quickly become the biggest design challenge – and opportunity - of our age, and how collaboration is essential to bring people from different disciplines to think creatively about how we can do things differently in the future.
