Design is one of our most powerful tools in the COVID-19 crisis. It helps to protect us from the pandemic and to improve current medical solutions. Most important of all, design can prepare us for the post-pandemic lives in the future with radical changes. During my GID Journey, the most important lesson for me is to imagine and work with unreality. No one would have expected 2020 as such a challenging year to all of us. We need to purpose a distinctive world-view that challenges our beliefs, hopes, and fears. And that is what design is good at, to propose and suggest something, then extract the essence to communicate with people. To use design as a research method and thinking tool to explore different possibilities, to criticize the past and the present, and to speculate the future. Design offers an effective way to help us, as a global citizen to tackle the complex social, political, economic, and ecological challenges.
