(Virtual) Global Practice Network: Let's Talk! Design Meets Diseases Across Geographies

COVID-19 is not the first nor the last pandemic we face. Besides the ongoing responsive actions, how do we frame our thinking when design meets diseases?

A starting point could be looking at the current pandemic from different perspectives of time, scale and geography. With the hope of building a more holistic picture in our minds that will guide us through the crises now and in the future, we would like to bring our talented fellow designers together and talk!
