Everything humans make starts with a design. A rough sketch on paper, a flow chart, an outline. Humans have become masters at designing perfectly engineered products to make our lives easier and buildings so tall it’s hard to fathom.
What if we take this same design approach that goes into products and buildings and apply it to designing solutions to hard problems? Using the beauty and logic of design to create solutions that will benefit humans across the planet and everything else on it (including the planet itself). In this conversation we talk with Sonya Kotov who is studying design impact at Stanford University, about how to actually design an innovative solution to a problem, and the kinds of solutions that are needed to create real change in the world.
