Founded by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, the World Hope Forum is an organisation whose main goal is to create a global platform for the exchange and expansion of knowledge, innovation of business practices, the resetting of making methods, the invention of alternative models, the rethinking of the rituals of selling, sharing and bartering – and other initiatives yet to be discovered.
Hosted by Petra Jansen, founder of Social Label & WHF Ambassador, this first meeting of great spirits and inspiring speakers comes to us from the Netherlands. Staged during Dutch Design Week, the conference will address topics such as the climate crisis, inclusivity, waste management, co-operation, indigenous design, archeology as a source of inspiration, and the inclusion of the humanities in design. Multiple ideas about slowing down and scaling down; doing good for people and the planet alike.
