Challenges and opportunities

Moderated by Barbara Lersch (Hans Sauer Foundation), actors such as Mona Mijthab von MosanFelix Egle & Felix Schreiber, Prof. Ineke Hans (other participants tba) will talk about their experiences in various industries about challenges and opportunities of participatory design. How do actors deal with industry-specific challenges – from urban practice to medical and circular design? How can we anchor participatory design processes in the processes of cooperation partners as an independent designer, in agencies or companies? How can citizens, employees, stakeholders and affected persons be activated and involved in processes? How is the professional image of the designer and the relationship between designers and non-designers changing?
