In a time of human induced climate change and seemingly insurmountable challenges to maintain our natural systems: what roles can a designer play? Tacitly operating from producer-biased precepts of the location of meaning construction, designers often feel powerless to orient their practices as a productive ally to pro-conservation agendas. However, the design methods, technical capabilities and systems and service thinking that designers excel at offer new strategies and novel approaches to tackling intractable problems.
This talk presents a series of design research projects that support conservation scientists to improve the welfare of wild animals in captivity, and the technologies required for maintaining insurance populations of critically endangered species.

The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give open space for an open-minded and profound analysis of current and future issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers. The KISDtalks always take place on Tuesday at 5.30 pm. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge. The talk will be held in English language.
