John Stevens


In humanitarian innovation the beneficiaries may be separated geographically and culturally and may have suffered, or be at risk of, horrific abuses. How can we be user-centred? How can we design with, not for? John Stevens, Senior Lecturer on the Royal College of Art’s Global Innovation Design Masters programme, will share some examples of work past and in progress, and discuss the practical and ethical challenges and opportunities in this field from sanitation hardware to digital, AI-driven tools to enable and empower.
