What Design Can Do

What Design Can Do is an international platform that believes in the power of design and creativity to transform society. This edition will be held for the first time in Mexico, here Miguel Melgarejo, director of innovation at Cirklo, and Joel Escalona will host a breakout session about how design can impact business, society and the environment.

Joel and Miguel will share local insights about how design really works out (or not) through their experience working in Mexico and applying design to generate value. 

The breakout session will also be open for a couple of local projects to share how they are using design to generate value and receive feedback from the hosts and the audience. Through this exercise different perspectives on the real use of impactful design will be shared and discussed.
