Curso de verano junio 2011: Design Science Lab

Altamente recomendable: http://www.designsciencelab.com/index.shtml

Students and young professionals from around the world* are coming to the 2011 Lab. They will be briefed by UN experts (from the UN Development Program, UN Environmental Program, UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO and other UN agencies),** develop comprehensive strategies for solving some of the world's most critical problems, and then present their work at the UN. They will learn a powerful strategic design and planning methodology that will be of use for the rest of their life, as well learn about leadership, problem solving and the design revolution. They will learn about global problems, options, technology, culture, resources and what they can do to make a difference. They will meet others with similar passions about the state of the world— and what we can do to make things better.
