Tyra von Zweigbergk | Secretary General | Sweden
"In order to take design to its full potential in society, we need to create the best circumstances for designers to do their work. Despite the pervasiveness and importance of design, the position of the designer and the profession itself is often precarious. I believe demonstrating the value of design and good practice and ethics is critical. With my experience and knowledge from the Nordic countries I would like to continue ensuring designers are recognised, protected and supported."
