Event description

Description

Our first event was about getting together and chatting. We had a range of activities to get through; we only got through one because we ended up having wonderful conversations instead. This was great!

To keep that warm vibe going, the second HMWDG get together can be as loose - or structured - as we want it to be.

To that end: meetup #2 will go over some of the problems that came out of the first meetup, and then we'll work through an activity to help us imagine what the world should look like.

Or not. Let's see how we go.

It'd be great to have you there.

Best,

HMWDG

Who are we?

We're a bunch of people - mainly designers and researchers - who want to do good, ethical and meaningful work for all people and the planet. But, there are barriers to doing this. Some of those barriers are obvious, others are abstract.

We get together to talk about the concrete problems and articulate the abstract ones. We're crafting ways to overcome these problems and striving for change without knowing all the answers in advance.

Many of our core questions ask:

What needs to change so that we can prioritise real problems - the ones that need the most attention - and create a world that we'd want to live in?

How do we guide our day to day work to help us make ethical decisions, and fight for what's right?

Where can we focus our actions - from the individual, to the collective, to the structural, the ideological and the global - to create meaningful change?

We welcome all kinds of critiques and approaches - from the conservative to the revolutionary - because we need practical and radical thinking to address these problems.

Our ideas won't always be in sync, and that's okay. This also won't suddenly burst into a billion-people strong movement, and that doesn't make this work any less important.

Even if there's only a few of us working together for all people and the planet, we're on the right track.
