Save the Date! The 3rd annual Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! will take place on November 12-13, 2012 in San Francisco right before USGBC's Greenbuild. Advance registration coming soon.

Join us for a practitioners' forum of innovative panel discussions and workshops. The two-day event brings together designers, architects, real estate professionals, manufacturers, academics, philanthropists, media and business leaders to address the collective challenges and lessons learned in humanitarian design. Panel topics address cutting-edge topics relevant to the field and one-on-one workshops allow participants to gain hands-on knowledge from community development experts.

A Design Open Mic allows emerging and established designers and architects to present their projects and design ideas in a seven-minute Pecha Kucha-style format, which keeps the pace rapid-fire and engaging. Many of those attending in years past have named the open mic as their favorite part of the event.

This year's Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! will inform and delight, attracting the best and the brightest in humanitarian design and development.
