Perspectives on the 2012 Forum: UMN College of Design

A number of students and faculty from the Design School at the University of Minnesota published a nice piece about their experience at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Forum. Here’s an excerpt:

“I was impressed by insightful questions posed at the end of the conference day. Does social networking have the capacity to cause change through widespread educational reach, or are we just mindlessly clicking things? What about social and economic barriers to the Internet? How does the relationship between education, social networking, and generational differences affect the ability to cause change? I think we are in the processes of searching for answers to those questions right now, and it’s good to continue to be aware of them going forward.”
