SECURE YOUR SPOT at the Fifth _by Design event on Wednesday, November 1st: Shared languages 🗣 for future energy ⚡ and carbon solutions 🌫

To effectively advance the green transition, we need to enhance our collective comprehension during discussions about optimal energy and carbon solutions for future societal structures.

To achieve this, we’ve pinpointed wicked problems that require creative problem-solving, and we invite you to secure your spot at the Fifth _by Design event in Copenhagen on Wednesday, November 1st, 2023.

This event will be hosted by KIRT x THOMSEN, in collaboration with fellow _by Design partners Design denmark and 1508.

We’ll also have expert support from the Novo Nordisk FoundationHyme and the Novo Nordisk Foundation CO₂ Research Center (CORC) on the day. The event will be held at HYME’s new offices located at Titangade 11, 2200 Copenhagen N.

During the event, you’ll engage in a workshop alongside a diverse assembly of professionals, experts, and designers. Together, you’ll tackle two specific wicked-problems and gain insights into the process of problem-solving through design.

#1 How might we better describe future societal structures to boost sustainable production?

#2 How might we better facilitate debates on complex solutions like Carbon Capture and Conversion?
