Side Effects / Covid19 / Ep36: How will Britain recover? The Great British Design Challenge: Work & Society [4]

[67 Mins]

In The Great British Design Challenge we discover what leading Workspace designers, TV and film makers, innovators and design researchers identify as the problems that society most needs solving, and what the potential long-term impacts might be if left unresolved.

We explore the design of society from a different perspective to that of the SAGE group (or Independent SAGE) by questioning what key factors to address to help Britain move forward.

In this podcast of #TGBDC we cover Work & Play. [Listen to part 1]
