You've watched his video; You love his book; you subscribe to his blog and follow his tweets. You're dying to go to one of his Doors of Perception Conferences, and you've caught a glimpse of him at the Triennale, but were too shy to say hi.
Well, it's not often that Core super-friend John Thackara comes states-side, but on Thursday, April 21st, John will be giving a talk at Carnegie Mellon's School of Design as the final guest in their How Do You Design the Future lecture series. John's talk is called "Life's Work: Opportunities in the Restorative Economy" where he'll argue that today's growth-at-all-costs economy is being replaced by a restorative economy. From dam removers to seed bankers, from iPhone doctors to rainwater rescuers - social innovators are creating value without destroying natural and human assets. In what ways can design contribute to this emerging new economy?
The talk is free and open to the public, so don't miss it. All info here.
