Opening Event and Cocktail Reception

"Events like these are why I get out of bed in the morning.” – Amy King, Director, USGBC Leadership Institute

The 3rd annual Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! will be taking place on November 12-13, 2012 at the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco..

Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! is a practitioners' forum of innovative panel discussions and workshops. The two-day event brings together designers, architects, real estate professionals, manufacturers, academics, philanthropists, media and business leaders to address the collective challenges and lessons learned in humanitarian design. Panel discussions and workshop sessions address cutting-edge topics, allowing participants to gain hands-on knowledge from community development experts.

A Design Open Mic session invites emerging and established designers and architects to present their projects and design ideas in a seven-minute Pecha Kucha-style format, which keeps the pace rapid-fire and engaging. Many of those attending in years past have named the Open Mic as their favorite part of the event!

This year's Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! will inform and delight, attracting the best and the brightest in humanitarian design and development.

Panel Topics:
Key Practices for Success in Disaster Reconstruction
Eco Development in Low-Income Communities
Neighborhood Security & Violence Prevention in the Built Environment
