The 2017 IFLA World Council will be held in Montreal, Canada on the 15 and 16 October 2017.
The World Council will form part of the World Design Summit Montreal 2017, an unprecedented international event during which practitioners, academics and other players from the design scene will get together to address a broad spectrum of issues related to the various disciplines of design. The whole of the event is planned to foster crossovers and the exchange of knowledge between disciplines. We invite IFLA Members to actively join the global community and come together to transcend silos through cooperation and transdisciplinary professional development, with a common focus: how can design shape a better future for all. More information about the summit here.
