Avoiding the Apocalypse: A Design Anthropological Perspective on Reflected Change

Anna Kirah

Managing Director at Design Without Borders

My job as a practitioner of anthropology has been to unveil “truths”. I have always said that there is no one truth, that in any argument both sides are partially correct. But, there is one truth: the world is changing and will continue to change and we are part of that change as long as we stay breathing.

This talk is about connecting the dots of what I have seen and not seen in our consultancies, corporations, organisations and academia around the world. It is my fundamental belief that we, as practitioners of anthropology and/or educators, have a responsibility for guiding and facilitating reflected change for the good of our people, our communities, our nations and our planet.
