From information super highways to climate change activism. Nobel Peace Prize winner and former US Vice President Al Gore held a very interesting and engaging keynote at From Business to Buttons 2016.
– Design and designers can make a tremendous difference, says Al Gore.

Al Gore took us on a wide spread exposé of technological possibilities – and got us all googling spider goats and twittering cows before settling on sustainability issues. 

He noted there are three questions left for climate change:

  • Do we have to change? – Yes!
  • Can we change? – Yes!
  • Will we change? -– Well, I’m optimistic.

He noted that the last question begs for design solutions: "Design and designers can make a tremendous difference”. 

And we’d better get to working on the problem, Gore spurs us on:  "There is no plan B, and there is no planet B. We are winning but it matters a lot how fast we are winning, and I’m worried we are not winning fast enough!”
