Prof. Thomas Kvan, Dean of the School of Design, hosted a brainstorming workshop on the 2021 Hult Prize Challenge： Transforming Food into a Vehicle for Change and inspired students' innovative thinking and entrepreneurship by threading human-centric design thinking and approaches into the proposal ideation. The workshop welcomed a full house and sparked lively discussions.
At the opening, Prof. Kvan gave a detailed introduction to this year's Hult Challenge and then illuminated how our existing food systems work, why they are failing humanity on a global scale, and what the lingering problems are. During the Q&A session, Prof. Kvan also shared his own observations on the food crisis caused by diminishing usable land and the unfairness of food systems in the three places he had lived in, namely Shenzhen, Melbourne, and Denmark. Many interesting and innovative ideas were built during the heated group discussions, with each group made up of 3-4 students.
