What it's all about
Communities of people can play an important role in supporting communities of bees. Join Design Council’s Bee Lab Breakfast to find out more about the role of open design in helping to encourage our bees.
This event will contribute to a wider debate about open design: “just because it is open, does that mean it is good?”.
- How can community groups use open design to help bees in a way that suits them, whilst benefiting a third party?
- What are the implications of design being handed over to non-specialists, and what role can professional designers play in this?
- What are the benefits, pitfalls and opportunities within open design for professional practice?
A breakfast with honey will be served from 8.30am, ready for the event to start at 9am.
Organised in partnership with Robert Phillips from Horizon Digital Economy Research.
