Climate change, urbanization, the increasing use of technology in our lives... where is it all leading, and how can we shape our society in a positive, meaningful way? In this episode, we take a look back at Dutch Design Week 2019. What was on offer? What connections were made? And how were people inspired? Marianne Aarnoudse, program manager of World Design Embassies at Dutch Design Foundation, takes us to each of the embassies’ pavilions and explains the solutions they’re working towards, and the public’s reaction.Listen to our other episodes on the Embassies of Health, Mobility, Sustainable Design, Circular Biobased Building, Water and Safety.
