The 26th Icsid World Design Congress to Commence in Singapore

Over 500 creative thinkers from almost 40 countries around the world, set to build a better-designed future, are converging in Singapore for the 26th Icsid World Design Congress themed "Design Difference, Designing Our World 2050".

From 23-25 November, delegates will get a rare chance to work with 15 of world's leading creative thinkers to imagine a better-designed future - collaborating on ideas that could be a reality in the next 40 years.

Nine of the 15 speakers have been commissioned by DesignSingapore Council to lead what have been called "Design2050 Studios".

Each Studio is a mini-symposia that have developed innovative design solutions for some of the most challenging global issues of the next four decades.

A wide range of topics are covered from how an urban area will be experienced in 40 year's time; to how a future healthcare system can be built on maintaining a balanced lifestyle as opposed to responding to illness.

The Congress will be the first time that the Design2050 Studio Leaders - all preeminent in their specialist field of design - share their visionary thinking with a public audience.
