Event description

Description


Are you willing to unleash your creativity, and tackle both micro and complex macro challenges? Are you looking for new ideas, best-practices and tools on how to innovate for a balanced, sustainable and thriving future?

Under the theme ‘Rethinking well-being’, the summit will take place from June 13 till June 15, organised by BCD Barcelona Design Centre and Service Design Days


RETHINKING WELL-BEING
Well-being and quality of life are becoming key success factors for a growing number of organisations. Values as individualism, competition and market primacy are no longer leading. Instead new societal values - trust, relationship and collaboration - are the guiding principles.

This is where design shows its value. Design that drives a better understanding of citizens, patients, consumers, students and all other types of customers, helping to identify their demands and hidden barriers. Design that empowers organisations and its people to create unique and valuable experiences to each and every person. Experiences that help organisations to achieve their missions - from spreading the power of optimism to helping people in every stage of their lives.

So, how to improve our view on well-being as a driver for innovation and positive change? How to look at problems from a human perspective? How to design services that contribute to people’s happiness, and help individuals to participate in society, become healthier, and feel more empowered? And what can we learn from NGOs and care providers, for which human centricity lies at the core of their activities?

The summit will engage you into the relevance of creating shared value and addressing societal challenges as a source of innovation and organisational growth. You will practice new methods, approaches and strategies. You’ll hear fresh ideas and new perspectives from different industries, contexts and stakeholders. We will focus on two Sustainable Development Goals: Improving people’s positive functioning and well-being (#3), and Empowering and building sustainable communities (#11).
