Harry West - Better Future SPOTLIGHT

Updated: Jul 7

The Better Future SPOTLIGHT podcast series is a series of one on one conversations with executive designers focusing on how a Better Future can be achieved faster through a design lens.





In this week's Better Future SPOTLIGHT, Mark talks to Harry West - Professor of Practice at Columbia University and Principal at Invisible Design - about the 'earthshot'... how can we provide more satisfaction using less material goods and services? They discuss the value of leaning into change and the importance of locating dignity, the challenges around seeking happiness and health amidst capitalism, and the necessity of the designers' role of tackling issues that have no solution.
