In May 2010,  I was invited to speak at the Design Research Conference 2010 hosted at the Sperturs Institute and organized by the Illinois Institute of Technology | Institute of Design in Chicago, IL. My talk «Design is Diplomacy» focused on an experiential learning project that I was part of in Ecuador through my semester aboard The Scholar Ship. The academic week in Ecuador was supported by UNICEF and UNDP.
