Monday, June 25th, 2012
The organisers are calling it “A creative platform for presenting and debating important and controversial ideas, both on and off the stage” Tuesday 18th September 2012 is the date of the inaugural Global Design Forum, taking place at the spectacular Central Saint Martin’s campus in King’s Cross, London.
The Forum “will be the design calendar’s most enlightening and intensive one-day conference” according to organisers, bringing together the brightest industry leaders, thinkers and makers from around the world. The event is being curated and delivered by the London Design Festival team.
The purpose of the Forum is to demonstrate design’s role in creating a more sustainable and prosperous future. The forum will bring together an alliance of organisations and talents – “from the most dynamic start-ups to the world’s most successful brands”; from key public sector figures to the most innovative design studios; from social entrepreneurs to cultural pacesetters – “to not just exchange ideas but to set the agenda for design’s impact on our world”.
The Global Design Forum takes place during London Design Festival 2012 “We stay ahead by being different and more relevant each year” says Ben Evans, the festival’s director.
