Design Impact Vol. 2: Straight-Up Talk: Homelessness - Ethics / Policy / Action, sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Design Alumni Council, is a direct, real-talk dialogue on homelessness in the United States. It explores the myriad causes of rising homelessness and innovative solutions to eradicate it. It consists of 3 distinct panels followed by a summary dialogue. The panels are prefaced by keynote remarks from Binyamin Applebaum, lead writer on business and economics for the Editorial Board of The New York Times.
The first panel, “Ethics: Is Housing a (Universal) Human Right?” will probe the cultural, historical, and socio-political causes of homelessness in the United States, as well as the moral and ethical question of who bears ultimate responsibility for providing housing in this country. The second panel, “Policy: What’s the Problem?” will clarify homelessness politics and policy, focusing on how to advance a new national will committed to providing affordable homes for all individuals. The third panel, “Action: Accelerating Implementation”, will explore a range of housing and other innovative solutions designed to help eradicate homelessness in the United States and abroad.
