Students Create A Better World by Design Conference

Students at Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) put together one of the best design conferences around. A Better World by Design was founded in 2007 by Steve Daniels, Brown '10, and continues to be organized annually by the student-run research center Better x Design, founded in 2008 to promote globally conscious design curricula at Brown University and the Rhode Island School for Design (RISD).

A Better World by Design brings together a world-wide collection of about 500 designers and students to Providence, Rhode Island, to reach across disciplines under a common goal. Presenters like Emily Pilloton (right) and Vivian Loftness (left) shared engaging stories and sparked discussions about the role of design in the world.

A Better World by Design was founded and is organized annually by an interdisciplinary group of students from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design.
