Politics continuously play an important role in shaping our lives.

How has this changed over time? With the advances in technology, people have been more connected and informed about current affairs than ever. Heated political arguments seem to crop up on social media platforms ore often and ‘cancel culture’ is a common saying in today’s vocabulary. 

How has this changed how politicians and political parties project their ideas? And how has our voting behavior changed?

Join our talk ‘Politics in the 21st Century” to discuss, explore and share these ideas with experts and students alike.

LightBulb Chats

DesignLab’s LightBulb Chats are enlightening conversation starters: open invitations to publicly debate controversial elements shaping our future today. They focus on intriguing topics that play a significant role in our everyday lives, and are likely to influence the world of tomorrow. Think: will artificial intelligence put humans in the backseat? Do you need a degree to be successful? And now we can ‘design’ babies, does that mean we should play God?

The Lightbulb Chats aim to build bridges between students, academia, civil servants, business(wo)men, artists, and other curious civilians. Join the discussion and our mission to engineer the future together!
