Taking the Long View: Design and the Nonprofit
Most of today’s positive design solutions focus on green design. Although issues such as efficiency and sustainability are critical, one can’t ignore equally pressing issues like humanitarian aid, education and healthcare. Often overlooked, nonprofit groups tend to take on the burden in areas where government agencies fail. This event will feature presentations by landscape architect Lily Jencks from Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres and Cameron Sinclair, co-founder of Architecture for Humanity-two international nonprofit organizations that use design in exceptional, and human, ways.
