Être designer aujourd’hui : éthique, posture et vision
What is the vision for the design profession? In the context of current socio-ecological issues, the practice of design raises questions about the legacy of the discipline, its practices and its professional ethics. Mellie La Roque will share her committed point of view on the subject, drawing on her expertise in research and service design, as well as on her activities as co-chair of Designers Éthiques.
