What Politics Can Learn From Design

Learn and think like designers. Great and informative talk from Jocelyn Bailey, a researcher at Westminster Policy Connect, where she runs activities around design, innovation and manufacturing policy. Her mission is to build up a body of work and an agenda around design policy - those areas of mutual interest to design and politics.

    It's interesting because in this political society (at least in the US) I feel we're moving away from these steps above. Bailey's note on optimism is key, because we feel and want the change in our society but are too busy living in the past, and relying on political parties to make that change happen. Hopefully more of our political leaders will see this inspiring video and post!

      I would love it if politicians were more thoughtful about their approach- not just thinking macro, but also micro. The more they focus on individuals and not groups of people, the better almost. Politicians who tell those personal stories are more likeable bec they learn from those stories- and then use them to make informed decisions. It's unfortunate that politicians in the U.S. at least have natural biases bec of the parties they represent. It would be wonderful if they were all united towards the same goals to just solve problems that affect society.
