Lisa Hu: Designing solutions for societal issues

Lisa Hu graduated in 2014 from Design Academy Eindhoven – department Man and Leisure. She’s been a social designer ever since. Lisa believes in designing solutions for these issues, whilst including the people concerned from start to finish. She thinks the awareness about this already starts with kids at school. Which is why she designed a citizenship game, enabling them to discuss societal issues and explore their own stance.
