Design Innovation Summit: Design + Nature

Presented by Massachusetts College of Art & Design

Digital Media Center Lecture Hall, 

621 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115


The choices we make shape the world around us. Welcome to the Design Innovation Summit where we explore the role of design and creativity to preserve and protect the natural world. Join us for a day filled with inspiring talks, workshops, and networking opportunities that bring together communities from industry, non-profit, academy, and policy. Whether you're a designer, student, executive, or simply curious about the endless possibilities when design meets nature, this event is for you. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to be part of MassArt's first Design Innovation Summit!  

MassArt’s Design Innovation program brings together faculty and students from around the world to unlock the innovation potential of several fields of design. This year’s innovation agenda focuses on conservation and the potential for design to have a positive impact on the natural world. 


This event will include two tracks, a main stage set of speakers and panel discussions and a series of short workshops showcasing key design practices attendees can take away and apply.


Workshops will feature MassArt faculty sharing primers from the Design Innovation program's core curriculum. Main stage speakers will look at opportunities for design interventions that positively impact conservation, urban greening, and design for behavior change.
