This year, 2020, marks the start of a new decade, 10 years during which we will have to take action if we want to achieve the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (the 2030 Agenda). With the theme “Design activism”, the 15th Barcelona Design Week represents a dual call for mobilization. On the one hand, mobilization of the sector and the activism of professionals and companies in order to deploy design capable of creating equality, balance and trust, for both the planet and people.
From the 17th to the 26th of November, around eighty activities will take place online and one of the most expected talks will be the opening conference. This year it will be held by world renowned MoMA curator Paola Antonelli.
