Health by World Design Embassies

The World Design Embassies connects designers with companies and stakeholders to look at the challenges we face as a society in a quickly-changing world, and the role design can play. In this episode: Designer Frank Kolkman – ambassador to the Embassy of Health – and Jetske van Oosten – one of the Embassy’s curators – discuss the role of designers in the future of healthcare, who should be responsible for those in need of it and what defines the quality of care.

Health by World Design Embassies

Listen to our other episodes on the Embassies of Mobility, Sustainable Design, Circular & Biobased Building, Water and Safety. We speak to both curators and practitioners about the challenges they face, and the solutions they envision for future societies. 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?

Come join us during Dutch Design Week, when the Embassies take on a physical form – in exhibitions, lectures, discussions and workshops – so that ideas, expertise and insight can be shared, with experts but also with the general public. October 19-27, 2019 in Eindhoven.
