Humanizing Design.
Hyderabad Design Week is a city-wide festival of design that brings together leading design practitioners to explore their role as problem-solvers and change-makers, present the best in human-centric design innovation, and tackle some of the greatest challenges facing the world today. With the theme of Humanizing Design, Hyderabad Design Week 2019 will be held in tandem with the 31st edition of the World Design Assembly – the first time this globally significant event will be held in India.

On 10 October 2019, Alok Nandi is speaking at the WDO Research and Education Forum.

In partnership with the Industries and Commerce Department, Government of Telangana, the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad and the Indian School of Business, World Design Organization (WDO)® is pleased to present the 2019 Research and Education Forum on 10 October 2019, in conjunction with its 31st World Design Assembly on 11-12 October 2019 in Hyderabad (India).

Under the banner of ‘Humanizing Design’ this one-day Forum aims to share perspectives and explore trends that better prepare young design professionals for new challenges and opportunities.

We are truly excited to invite the participation of academics and industry leaders, in thought provoking dialogue around new education programmes and areas of research, and new practices that focus on more human-centered approaches to designing for a better world.

The aim is also to create bridges between these worlds in the belief that together we can further enhance the future of design research and education.

The Forum will address the following three themes:

1. Integration of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) in International Design Curricula

2. Future of Design Education and Research in Emerging Economies

3. Human Approach to Digital Media
