Canceled: Symposium: Future business design with social issues in mind

March 15th (Sun), 2020

In view of the coronavirus situation in most countries, the following event will be canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

In recent years, efforts to achieve the SDGs have become more active. One example of this is the movement to solve social issues with design. Kyushu University, with support from Exploration and Development of Global Entrepreneurship for NEXT generation (EDGE-NEXT), offers an international social science class designed to raise up the next generation of social entrepreneurs.

We have invited two experts from the United Kingdom: an expert in inclusive design, and an expert in sustainable design. The class will involve thinking about the future of business from the perspective of social issues.
