Our world is facing complex challenges including: the impacts of climate change, an ageing population, supply of health and sanitation, global migration, food and water shortages, social exclusion, energy costs, waste and pollution management, health and demographic inequalities – the list goes on.

Technology is changing at such a rapid pace – it is near impossible to keep up. With talk of the next industrial revolution and technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics and automation set to disrupt the workplace and force companies to re-think their businesses models and workforce.

What does this all mean for design? What will the design jobs of the future look like and how will your design career need to evolve in anticipation of the market needs of tomorrow?

We invited experts from across the design sector to get their take on the future of design and what it may look like in the next 10 years. Join this thought provoking discussion and get a valuable insight into how you can prepare your design career for the world ahead.
