This two-day conference will bring together provincial, national and international partners to discuss the problems faced by rural and remote communities and how the principles of design can be used to develop effect and practical solutions. Using the principles of "Human Centred Design", participants will be introduced to the concepts of design-thinking, work together to consider one or more issues, and work to develop an effective response. Core to "Human Centred Design" is the principle of "people first" and so our conference will focus on a hands-on interactive approach that relies on the expertise of local leaders as well as content experts from across North America. To fully underscore the "people first" approach, the second day of the conference will happen at the Bonne Bay Aquarium and Research Centre in Norris Point, NL.
