The latest Design@50 event focused on the topic Design in a Time of Climate Emergency, featuring reflections and discussion between Prof Stephen Peake, Dr Emma Dewberry, Dr Alessandra Campoli and Dr Derek Jones.
The event also featured archive footage from the first Open University course that introduced design, connecting it to far broader issues around socio-technical, environmental and sustainability.
Some things haven’t changed very much at all, as can be seen in the clips. But a few things have moved on and the panel explored some of these in an extended discussion.
