International Delta Conference—Redesigning Deltas
Design for transformative change:
evidence, agency, cross-disciplinary knowledge
Unsustainable growth and climate change increase the urgency to radically change our current practice of delta management. There is still too much emphasis on short term solutions which constrains options to consider sustainable solutions on the long term. Redesigning Deltas International Conference is a unique event which aims to facilitate dialogues about the future of our deltas with a diverse range of stakeholders that includes academia, practitioners, scientists and policy makers from across the world.
It is more important than ever to collectively build the knowledge needed to develop and implement inclusive and situated pathways to sustainable deltas. The conference program will address the current status and future challenges of our deltas, centered on design and design-based approaches to jointly identify these pathways. The leading hypothesis to be advanced during the three conference days is the role of design in questioning, understanding, and changing socio-ecological relations shaping delta futures.
Detailed logistical information and the full programme of the conference, with confirmed speakers and participants, will be available soon.
The program includes plenary and hybrid parallel sessions, roundtables, excursions, design exhibition and side events. Full Programme Outline
