Dialogues on Design Education

Dialogues on Design Education,


7th China Design Forum 2021


The 7th China Design Forum was successfully staged on December 12th in C Future Lab, Shenzhen and marked the first-time collaboration with a design school, SUSTech School of Design. This dialogue on design education, which was delivered in a hybrid setting, attracted a cohort of experts, scholars, designers, and industry representatives.


Education represents a very important investment and a major initiative for the future of the society. Hence, discussion on design education is of great significance since it will prepare China for marching into a design of quality from one of quantity. The Forum this year is aimed at promoting communications and dialogues and presenting diversified points of view on the basis of equality and respect, where guests, either online or offline, expressed thought-provoking opinions and engaged in a four-hour long discussion, providing much food for thought.


Scholars, designers, industrial representatives, and directors of C-Foundation at home and abroad discussed three topics during the forum, namely Creativity and Responsibility: Design Education in a Technical Era, Good Models to Work with Industries and China's Contribution to Next Design.
