"Winter Conversations" will seek to transform itself into a space for reflection on the work of design in a field that goes beyond the conventional.
With the idea of generating distance dialogue activities to provide other training spaces for students, the Design School of the University of La Serena will carry out the "Winter Conversations" activity, instances that will allow specialists to share their vision on topics of social interest, in the face of the new scenario arising from the pandemic.
The idea is to dialogue about the evolution of design thinking, applied to the design of integrated systems, beyond the field of the conventional design profession.
The first discussion will precisely address "Integral design for regenerative development" and will include the participation of Grifen Hope, a Latin American leader in the teaching of permaculture and regenerative design.
For the host of these meetings, the academic Marco Gutiérrez, the talks will deal with issues of a transdisciplinary nature. "Because of a deep systemic or civilizational crisis (of which the pandemic is a temporary expression), it is urgent to co-create new forms of social coexistence, of economies, of land uses, of health, etc., an emerging model Reaching this challenge is regenerative design, which is now projected to regenerative development, which aims to create systems that not only reduce damage to ecosystems and human communities, but also regenerate their health, fertility, diversity, etc. Something that ecosystems and living systems know how to do ”.
