Film Screening: Extreme by Design
Extreme by Design follows a band of college students, who, using a radical new design approach, make life-changing products for the poor. At a time of unprecedented global challenges, the under-thirty 'Millennial' generation has every reason to be fatalistic and disengaged. Yet, in fields ranging from public health to education, plenty of millennials are engaged. The film shows the students as they master 'design thinking' techniques, practicing how to listen empathetically, brainstorm exhaustively and prototype rapidly at the 'd.school' (Stanford's futuristic newInstitute of Design). KQED is proud to be a media partner of the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF). Find out more about UNAFF at unaff.org.
