Human connection to technology, the environment and sustainability are key at the IDC Design Symposium.
At one of North America’s most inspiring and educational conferences showcasing the significance of design in Vancouver this fall, the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) are taking a closer look at the intersection between design and human connection.
Since its publication in 2013, Happy City by Charles Montgomery has prompted the idea that urban design can foster community and promote overall health and happiness – a key concept this year as IDC aims to explore the human connection to ever-changing technology, the natural environment and sustainability. Over the course of the two–day Design Symposium, study the role design plays in human connection, health, productivity and inclusivity through workshops focusing on the idea of happy cities, expert panel discussions, guided design tours and more.
When: September 12 and 13
Where: Hyatt Regency Vancouver, 655 Burrard St.
Tickets: $195 and up
