Design & Research: Responsibility, Integrity, and Respect

Read Time: 1 minute
The SEGD Riga Chapter is hosting “Design & Research,” a virtual event on Friday, December 2, 2022. International design industry experts, representatives of academia and practicing designers will talk about the importance of design and research in highlighting social and systemic problems in various countries around the world. The panel includes representatives from Latvia, USA, India, China, Ireland and Sweden.

“To design a better world, designers need to practice benevolence, respect, and tolerance. To speak up and to undertake study for the benefit of civic society, to acknowledge and to recognize diversity, courage and integrity are demanded. It is about being a virtuous and professional person to sustain democracy and an inclusive society.”
Dr. Art. Aija Freimane, SEGD Riga Chapter coordinator and event moderator

The free event will feature design research using responsible, sensitive and cognitive methods to address violence, vulnerability, and being “different.”
