Ratings and Reviews
Great Content, Amazing User Experience
The Drivers of Change platform connects the dots regarding crucial issues facing todays world, from Climate Change to Energy, and Urbanization. It asks open ended question to help think about critical issues, these questions are nuanced by facts, diagrams, and a summary of the topic. They are used in workshops that can help reframe and rethink projects, they can be used in an academic context and inform users of new ways to think about problems and solutions in a unique way.
This is an easy way to navigate the "drivers" that influence our lives and the planet we all share. I love that Arup has a Foresight division that looks beyond the business of building massive structures, and focuses on the effects their projects have on the communities around them.
This is a great app.
Thought-provoking and interesting, drivers of change is beautifully designed and mesmerizing to navigate as you read about the challenges we face. Recommended!
