Nancy Frates tells a superbly told story about making an impact

Care. Do. Enlist others. Make an Impact. Share your story well.

If you ever come across a situation that you see as so unacceptable, I want you to dig down as deep as you can and find your best mother bear and go after it. (Applause) Thank you. (Applause)

How can design solve real world problems? Our new exhibition, Design for Social Impact, shows how the design process is being used to tackle some of the 21st century’s most difficult problems.

Based on the idea that design is a way of looking at the world with an eye for changing it, Design for Social Impact looks at how designers, engineers, students, professors, architects, and social entrepreneurs are using design to solve problems in the areas of shelter, community, education, healthcare, energy, and food & water.
