Activation Sessions

 
Next to our main stage programme of talks by international speakers, this year our two-day event will be filled to the brim with opportunities for you to engage more closely with particular issues, and in smaller groups.

This parallel programme of so-called Activation Sessions will take place in and around the Muziekgebouw Aan ’t Ij, and will also vary in format: from master classes by design visionaries, to roundtable discussions, interactive workshops and even public exhibitions. Event visitors may choose to attend 2 sessions per day; all of which will explore themes connected to climate change. Do note that they are still subject to change, and we will continue to update this page over the coming weeks!
