• What are the future implications of borderless technology for the society that design serves? • How can we hold on to regional context and cultural authenticity while also designing with global insights in mind? • What role can digital platforms play in re-shaping the way designers collaborate at a global and local level? • How can cultural narratives and geopolitical, and physical borders be better understood with digital insights? • How can designers use digital tools and platforms to improve engagement with local communities to better serve their needs?
