Our final talk at Dutch Design Week looks at design and politics

Watch our final talk at Dutch Design Week on design and politics

Finishing off Good Design for a Bad World, our series of talks about how design could tackle the world's big problems, a panel of speakers debated our turbulent political times live from Dutch Design Week.

The talk explored how design can address widespread content that led to the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote.

Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs hosted the talk, which featured Design Indaba founder Ravi Naidoo on the panel. They were joined by Rudy van Belkom, who designed an alternative electoral system, art historian Lennart Booij and artistic director Jan Boelen to question whether design can improve the current state of politics.

Dezeen hosted five panel discussions as part of the Good Design for a Bad World initiative, which took place at the People's Pavilion at KetelHuisplein 1, in the Strijp-S district of Eindhoven.
