As part of the Summit, a new design event called Design Commons is to be launched. Design Commons is an evening conference and travelling platform where activists, makers and shapers gather to share their experiences, knowledge and ideas.
Desing Commons puts international design stars at the same table with the audience tocreate a relaxed, informal atmosphere allowing global ideas and cooperation to flourish. The concept has been created by Design Indaba in collaboration with Helsinki Design Week. Read more about DesignCommons and the speakers here.
