The second edition of the Barcelona Design Thinking week at Elisava will focus on Social Innovation.
Today we live an era of profound change in a broad sense: social, economic and mentality schemes evolve and open opportunities for new visions that become the thematic focus for the week.
Fields such education, health, equality, housing and citizen participation have been key in developing the recent history of the western civilization and even more over the current economic crisis, which has transformed map of the world and the life of millions of people.
The redesign of systems that shape communities, reflects the fact that societies are changing, and not only to adopt new tools and technology, but to implement new behaviors and attitudes about the relevance of the systems that have ruled so far.
We expect BDTW2012 is an opportunity and a meeting point to generate synergies and many ideas to transform our own future.
