WDE Talks: How do we design a safe and inclusive society?
An inclusive society is an open society who fights for the participation of everyone. A society where every citizen contributes and the notion of reciprocity is key. What if this is not the case? Polarisation and we vs. them mentality wins the upper hand. This plays a big role in undermining with a neighbourhood focus. We spoke with Tabo Goudswaard (Curator Embassy of Safety) and Jorn Konijn (Curator Embassy of Inclusive Society) on Thursday 1 July. They will be joined by expert in the field, Domenica Ghidei Biidu, who was a member of the Human Rights Council and a member of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance. Together we explored the different ways in which designers can contribute to a society where everyone feels seen and represented.

WDE Talks: Food and water systems for a healthy planet
Water and food are essential for life on earth. For us as a humanity, but also for earth itself. Currently, the way we interact with earth has more negative effects on our planet, biodiversity and nature. This cannot go on any longer. On Thursday 3 June we discuss with Embassy curators Annelies Hermsen (Food) and Anouk van der Poll (Water) about how we can secure our planet in the future and reform our systems in a way that it will contribute to a healthy earth. In addition, we speak with expert Evelien de Olde who is part of the team that formulated the prizewinning Foodvision 2050.
