Join Liverpool School of Art and Design on Tuesday 10th October for an evening of debate and discussion, where they’ll be exploring how design is influencing the climate narrative, the persuasive techniques used to shape our planets’ future, and the way in which these issues impact on social justice.

Scott’s work includes the visual identity for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ congressional campaign, and campaign work for Green New Deal and Planned Parenthood.

Following this LJMU alumni Sana Iqbal will lead a panel discussion exploring design’s power to influence the political narrative to what action needs to be taken to support a just green transition.
