Bill Moggridge

Bill Moggridge – Director Cooper Hewitt & Founder IDEO
Digital technology is everywhere and everyone is connected to everyone else. How are human interactions adjusting to the information revolution? What is happening to work habits and the workplace? Bill will try to answer some of these questions, drawing on the material from his book ‘Designing Interactions ‘ and the research for his new book ‘Designing Media’.


David Owen

David Owen – Staff Writer The New Yorker & Author of Green Metropolis
Is New York the greenest city on the planet? Density – moving people together – has a crucial role in greening our towns and cities. In New York, as in London, walking is still a primary method of transport. How does distributed working impact our thinking on the future of green cities?
