Exploring Climate Change and Design in a Local Arts Organization's Continuing Education Program
Sunday, January 26, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: Pennsylvania Convention Center
Where is the intersection between libraries, design, and society’s “wicked problems”? At Chicago’s community digital lab LATITUDE, Renee Albrecht-Mallinger and John Jung used a reading group to start talking about speculative design and climate change. Speculative design opens new ways of thinking and being, constructing spaces for discussion and inspiring imagination. With readings exploring climate and design from a variety of perspectives and through discussion and design activities, participants were encouraged to push their thinking on climate and design. This session will help library professionals find new ways to advance community partnerships and interdisciplinary dialogues for society’s benefit.
