We believe that innovation and creativity are helpful responses towards engaging with complex social issues such as amidst the rapid global changes. On one hand, we’ve witnessed incredible advances in technology, health, and wellbeing and so forth; and, on the other hand, we’re facing planetary level existential threats, climate emergency, income inequality, environmental degradation, and so forth. Therefore, the "Design Futures" community combines multiple fields and disciplinary perspectives ranging from philosophy, aesthetics, art, design, sociology and other fields to think about how to anticipate and respond to complex social issue. We use an innovation centered design approach. We are committed to providing an academic exchange platform for educators, researchers, practitioners, students and other cross-innovators in related fields around the world to explore advanced theories and discuss futures centered directions.
