Lecture Theater 1, Blackett Building,
Imperial College London, London
For DesignLondon’s upcoming STIR lecture, John Thackara, Roland Bonney and Claire Patey will come together to share their perspectives on food and farming while considering how design might be a useful tool to address the challenges involved.
Current farming techniques are efficient but unsustainable and often unethical. And will they be enough to provide for everyone in a near future when the population of the world is predicted to hit nine billion?
Design practitioners have long been trying to convince business, government and the ‘ordinary’ public of the important role that design plays in our everyday lives. Now more and more non-designers are starting to recognise just how powerful design thinking is, when trying to solve all sorts of problems. Design is so much more than making something look good - it could just help feed the world!
