Programme for RDS 2019?
The programme runs from the 27th of May and features workshops within the following fields

Bio-design: Designing with biological elements for a more sustainable future, and how can biology change and interact with our needs as humans.

Biomimicry and Biophilia: To understand about nature and how it replicates itself, this also allows us to learn about cell division and human evolution in a new found output to understand how can we be more “green” in our everyday life.

Futuristic materials: With our ever-changing need for better materials, how can we adapt and create new materials suitable for large scale replication.

Biotechnology: Engineering the future, what does CRISPR look like, how can I engineer the future to work within my needs and what are the ethics and implications.

Ethics and sustainability: De-bunking the myths and legends behind the “circular” economy and why has it become such a green-washed term.

Open source, distributed design: In an era where we will all become nomads, how do we create items for all rather than for one.

New wave sci-craft: How can we merge science and art to create deep learning experiences, as well as create new outlook upon design thinking.

And much much more. Attendees will be mailed a full programme of the 14-day schedule which includes theory, practical, talks, dinners and a final exhibition at this years Respond festival at the IDA headquarters in front of 3000 people in Copenhagen.
