Adam von Haffner (2014)
Adam argues that design and invention usually solve a problem – but not all design changes the world. In this short talk, he will share some of the best design cases that can make a substantial actual difference on a global scale. Challenges on a small and large scale, like waste management, climate change and traffic safety, affect our lives every day.
Adam von Haffner has been working with the Design to Improve Life concept for almost ten years through his commitment to the Danish-based design prize, “INDEX: Award” – arguably one of the most important design awards in the world. In his work, he has seen more than 5,000 cases of design that genuinely improve people’s lives from more than 80 countries around the world.
