The Social Design Talks series is back with a bang during the London Design Festival. Liza Chong, Strategy and Development Director of pioneering Danish design organisation INDEX, comes to London to talk about their mission to ‘Inspire, Educate and Engage people in designing sustainable solutions to global challenges’.

INDEX: Design to Improve Life is a Danish NPO with global reach. It was originally conceived in 2002 by designer Johan Adam Lindeballe and Danish Permanent Secretary Jørgen Rosted as a world event for design. It now runs the biggest design award in the world worth €500,000. It sends its award-winners on a world tour. And it supports design education, city collaborations and other investment initiatives.

Please note: this is a change to the original schedule as Kigge Hvid is now unfortunately unable to join us on the 20th. However we very much look forward to welcoming Liza!
