In the face of rapid climate change and the inevitable, severe consequences on our planet that we must prepare for, design intelligence has never been more critical. In this panel, speakers will discuss how design intelligence can be harnessed to help us respond to the extreme forces of nature, as well as how design can learn from and protect nature’s resilience. Importantly, the panel will explore what we can teach today to help future generations adapt to extreme change.
