In this third workshop on Thursday, December 19, KAKEI Yusuke, a representative of issue+design and leading person in the social design field, will speak about how to identify societal problems.
With regard to societal problems, in addition to solving such problems, knowing what problems exist and determining which problem to be addressed are equally important.
