Design Academy Eindhoven: Our Way Conference
On the 7th of September, the opening of a new academic year, we will discuss how empathy can play a role in the future of design education with lectures, debates, more then 10 workshops and by sharing good food!

Workshop: Empathy 2.0
With a focus on where compassionate communication and mediation are headed as they pertain to the current and future states of the online world, Darci Shaver and Edwin Rutsch explore concepts of connecting with others in cutting edge and empathic ways. This workshop will delve into current  comprehensions of apathy, anonymity, empathy, compassion, and altruism as they apply to online living. Expect a short story or two, some Q &A, a few interesting empathy ʻtestsʼ to participate in and lots of interesting discussion.
