Zinnia Nizar | Vice President | Indonesia
"During my terms as VP, I have experienced first hand the power of connection and collaboration and as I stated on my previous intent, «it is a much stronger voice when it is one voice». During the term 2017–2019, World Design Summit happened, and learning from my board members, any effort in uniting our voices is not a quick effort. It takes time and energy. Being a board member requires that, and I’d like to contribute my time and energy once more to this great cause, for communicating the value of design, for uniting our voices, for connecting the world and for the love of my profession."
