Design the Future Lecture Series

Each year our annual Design the Future Lecture Series brings transdisciplinary thinkers from around the world to campus, believing that the power of design addresses some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges. Our speakers come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines including business, non-profit, education, science, and more. 

We live-stream all of our lectures from the Design the Future Website, and they are watched by hundreds of people in dozens of countries around the world. You can join us live for this year’s series or browse our archive of past lectures. 

We hope you join us!
