Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode we speak to Deepak Mehta. Deepak is a tech-enthousiast who's always on the lookout for new technology and how that might shape the world as we know it.

He is perched at the intersection of a creative world of design jewellery, a business-driven world of mass-manufactured jewellery and a technological world of 3d-printing and mass-customisation. Waiting for people to see the tremendous opportunities that will arise when these worlds will collide.

In the meantime, he is using his creative and technological skills to educate the next generation of youth to see their future as more than what they learn in school. A whole generation of kids is at risk of missing out on skill-sets that is not yet explored at schools: design-driven creation, technology-driven innovation, out of the box thinking and cross-pollentation of creativity and technology in digital creativity.

21st Century Design is a research podcast by Engage by Design (Rodrigo Bautista) and Regenerative Design (Jan Leyssens), in which we ask designers, tech-experts, writers, theorists, academics, activists and campaigners 5 questions on the future and role of design in creating the 21st Century.
