Waag Talks at DDW: Start making sense
How can we move beyond closed technologies to empower citizens as active agents for environmental sensing? Waag Futurelab invites citizens to take the stage and engage in a dialogue with the government and open hardware makers. We will look into the possibilities of citizen-driven environmental measurement, citizen ownership of open data, and hardware design.
Who should make the rules of participation and who benefits? Together, we will start to develop civic-public-private partnerships, addressing critical issues such as valorisation of open data, hardware and trust, as well as design, development and social diffusion of innovative solutions. During the panel talk, speakers from diverse concern and interest groups are invited to share their point of view on the topic. We will conclude with an inspiring tour of the Dutch Design Week exhibitions.

Waag x Dutch Design Week
There is no planet B, but if there would be one, how should we design it? Take a look at Waag Futurelab during Dutch Design Week 2022 (22 - 28 October). Next to an exhibition at the Klokgebouw, we're organising talks, tours and events around changing the rules of the game. Check out Waag's programme at DDW.
About Waag Futurelab
Waag Futurelab is a platform for designers and artists to research current societal issues. Waag brings together all relevant parties through expositions, presentations, experiments, debates and reflection. In the four-year Expeditions to planet B programme, Waag Futurelab is finding the answer to the following design questions: what if a planet B would exist? How would we re-design our world and our lives? And what does that teach us about the here and now?
