2012 design for good summits
An invitational series of design thinking summits supported by PepsiCo Nutrition Ventures
This summer, PepsiCo Nutrition Ventures is partnering with AIGA and local chapters to host three Design for Good Summits, bringing together design professionals and civic leaders to develop innovative solutions to community-specific problems related to dietary guidance and lifestyle management.
The design summits, taking place in New York City, Seattle, and Birmingham over August and September, are an exploration of ways for chapters to organize designers and community leaders in a joint effort to support social change on a local level as part of AIGA's broader Design for Good initiative a movement to ignite, accelerate and amplify design-driven social change. These invitation-only summits are modeled on the 2011 Alabama Design Summit and 2009 Aspen Design Summit, which brought designers, issue experts and community leaders together for an intensive workshop to design solutions to problems that challenge the quality of life. Stay tuned for reports on the outcomes of each summit that will be published here later this fall!
