Strategic Design

About the topic

The complexity of global problems has grown significantly and the need to think ‘outside the box’ becomes indispensable. The guests had the chance to hear from passionate designer, thinker and speaker, Marco Steinberg, what solutions designers have to offer in regard to developing new visions for strategic improvement and to create an innovation culture inside an organization. Together with this inspiring keynote speaker, the guests were invited to reflect on how stakeholders of international governance can become more competitive through better design and what facilitating methods can be used to stimulate creativity. The meeting attempted to bridge the professional designer’s mind-set with the reality of local actors of the International Geneva. The aim of the format was to switch perspectives and approach global governance issues from a different angle.
