The international conference SOS Design, which will take place within the framework of the Tallinn Design Festival on Thursday, September 23, has this time focused on the crisis topic. The conversation will revolve around the crucial role of design in resolving changes and crises in society. In the context of the pandemic, the role of crisis planning is more important than ever. In addition to the pandemic, there are other global problems that require urgent intervention: the economic crisis, global warming, the energy crisis, poverty, and also the mental crisis.
