Kicking off Good Design for a Bad World, our series of talks about how design could tackle the world's big problems, Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs hosts a discussion on climate change live from Dutch Design Week.
The talk focuses on how climate change can be tackled and mitigated through design, and what designers can do to protect the population from its detrimental effects.
The livestream has now ended, but you can still watch the panel discussion in full above or on Dezeen's Facebook page.
