About KODW

Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) is an annual thematic programme that gathers the global design community to explore the use of design in tackling the big issues of today. The week-long event fosters cross-disciplinary learning and exchange through forums, roundtables, case studies and workshops, and also offers participants unique business networking opportunities.

Since its launch in 2006, KODW has proven to be an invaluable knowledge sharing platform connecting global field experts, policy makers, industry leaders and forward-thinking minds. It engages us in a multi-level dialogue on how design can solve complex challenges of our society.

About KODW 2019 Forum on Designing Digital Futures:

In the digital era, technology is shaping our urban environment and business systems, transforming industries and leadership, and changing the way we interact, experience and live.

What new futures are made possible by emerging technologies? As we embrace the digital transformation, what are the new opportunities and challenges for cities, business and all of us?

Digital and tech alone cannot solve complex challenges of our times. With a focus on people’s needs, human-centred design serves as a bridge to effect meaningful and compelling ‘user experience’.
