Design has the power to change the world. It is a tool that shapes and reshapes how we interact with everything—from the smallest object to the most complex system. As we confront new challenges, the need for rigorous dialogue has never been greater, which is why 50,000feet is proud to announce that the World Design Summit has selected us as a presenter and member of its inaugural multidisciplinary, multimodal, solution-oriented congress. The historic gathering in Montreal this October will include 3500 industry professionals, 500 expert speakers and 50 international organizations, with leaders in the fields of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture and graphic design. As part of this two-week forum, 50,000feet will contribute our thinking to develop an international action plan to address pressing global challenges, with the goal of designing a better world for all. No small task, but well worth the effort.
