Hong Kong Design Centre celebrates 20th anniversary with theme 'Design for Sustainable Community'

Debuting a new format, KODW 2022 to probe the urgency and potential of regenerative design

Speakers to include more than 30 field experts, entrepreneurs, and creatives from around the world

HONG KONG, Aug. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Organised by Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), co-organised by Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) and School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design (PolyU Design), together with Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR Government) as the Lead Sponsor, Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) assembles over 30 industry experts, entrepreneurs, and creatives in fields including architecture and urban planning, healthcare, and arts and culture to explore its 2022 theme 'Regeneration by Design'.

In the face of our rapidly changing global landscape and a mounting climate crisis, maintaining the status quo through green initiatives will not be enough. A successful transition into a truly sustainable society requires a regenerative design mindset focused on pivoting toward restoring and replenishing resources, striking a balance between economic development and environmental health.

From the innovation of materials, mobility, and food systems, to rebuilding urban spaces, empowering inclusive wellness, and reinventing e-commerce, KODW will spotlight design principles and case studies rooted in the vision for a sustainable future.

Bringing KODW to prime time: An all-new experience

This year, HKDC celebrates its 20th anniversary under the theme 'Design for Sustainable Community'. Facilitating an exchange of ideas between the worlds of design, business, and the public sector, as well as fuelling a synergy with other leading creative cities, KODW will be among HKDC's exciting year-round initiatives with Strategic Partner, the Netherlands, and its platform for creative pioneers, CreativeNL, and Strategic Regional Partner, Guangzhou Design Week. Also joining as Strategic Cultural Partner is M+, Asia's new museum of global visual culture, where this year's physical events will be hosted.

For the first time, KODW transforms the traditional format of an international design conference into a high-quality production on primetime television, with talks to be broadcast on ViuTVsix on 24 September, 8 October, 15 October, 22 October, and 12 November alongside the physical events at M+. The panel discussions will also be streamed online on bodw+ and on social media platforms to provide full access to viewers all over the world, while interactive live chats will be hosted on Zoom to engage KODW's international audience.
