MX Design Conference 2009: Social Impact of Design

3rd International Design Conference

incertidumbre Taking into account the pressing global changes; such as the economic crisis, the global warming, and the growing social inequality, it is urgent to search for new visions and actions that can balance the broad social and cultural diversity, environmental issues and the course of progress that humanity is facing. For this reason, the MX Design Conference 2009 will focus on reflection and learning from that theory and practice of any area of design, which seeks to balance the social, ecological and economic development of the world to contribute to a sustainable society.
