The Alumni Council of the Harvard Graduate School of Design is excited to extend an invitation to you and your club to attend Design Impact Vol. 3: South Asia - Design Agency & Climate Change, a virtual event to be held on February 25th, 2021 at 9AM - 12PM IST.

The event examines the understanding of design and development as applied or framed in the South Asian context with a particular emphasis on equity and socio-economic development. The event is organized into two panels presenting diverse voices followed by a moderated discussion and an audience question and answer session.

  • Panel 1: “Global Orientations and Local Perspectives,” will unravel the depth of inquiry and the degree of success in balancing global orientations and local practices in multiple South Asian cities.
  • Panel 2: “Climate Migration in South Asia,” will bring forth perspectives on climate migration in South Asia as a trigger to other forms of migration and the need for transformation and innovation in humanitarian response.

The event is free and open to all. Please find the registration link here.

With warm regards,
