*Content of the conference*
Maastricht Disrupt and Cube Design Museum organise their third Not a Design Conference. This years theme and title: HUMAN – NATURE
“Many voices around us shout the need to discuss human impact on the planet. With our conference, we invite everyone to think with us about how we can sustain and design a healthy planet.”
Disrupt committee 2019
The wellbeing of our planet involves nature as well as humans. The health of our environment is connected to our personal health. Today we are challenged by severe environmental problems that are primarily caused by human activities like global warming, soil deterioration, waste increase, and the ever-growing amount of mouths to feed. During This Is Not a Design Conference we invite inspiring speakers from a wide range of sectors and industries to present their views on these complex topics.
*What can you expect?*
The conference raises questions about how our human inventions influence nature and how nature influences us. Through talks, workshops and a panel discussion you are invited to learn about humans in nature and nature in humans. Questions we will discuss are: can we feed 9 billion people healthy food while respecting our planetary boundaries? How will we design our future cities and is sustainability the answer?
As an audience member, you are invited to ask critical questions and work on solutions using the Design Thinking method.
*The Venue: Cube Design Museum*
The Cube Design museum provides beautiful conference rooms that merge with Design Thinking labs. Together with the conference, Cube Design Museum is hosting the exhibition NATURE from 10 May onwards in collaboration with the Smithsonian Design Museum in New York. It displays the world’s most innovative design solutions that solve compelling environmental and humanitarian issues. During the conference, you are free to take a look at the exhibition.
