RSD 12 is a Relating Systems Thinking & Design symposium. A 15 days symposium organised by Georgetown University, USA and hosted by 14 different Universities across the world starting from 6th to 20th Oct 2023.

NID Ahmedabad has been actively engaged with RSD for over a decade. NID had organised and hosted RSD9, the first online symposia, and piloted the hub model with a two-day RSD11 event last year. This year we are also part of the RSD 12 and a hub from India.

NID Ahmedabad will be hosting RSD12 on 8th Sunday & 9th Oct Monday 2023 as part of RSD12 from India. This year's theme for India Hub is 'Hopeful Futures'. Systemic design for hopeful futures is an approach to design that seeks to create solutions and strategies that are optimistic, inclusive, inspiring, and empowering. This approach is rooted in the belief that design can be a powerful tool for positive change and that designers have a responsibility to create futures that are sustainable, equitable, and desirable.

The two day symposium includes Keynote speech by Dr. Ng Yeuk Fan on Health System Transformation Playbook, Paper presentations, Exhibition of Giga maps and 6 workshops, 3 facilitated in-person and 3 Internationally facilitated.

This is a ticketed event and is available to attend and participate in-person and online. We have limited seats. Registration open now.
