BeOpen – Russian philantropist supports Design with a think tank

Image

“BE OPEN is a global initiative to foster creativity and innovation, a think tank whose mission is to promote people and ideas today to build solutions for tomorrow.

It is a cultural and social initiative supported by the Russian philanthropist, businesswoman and entrepreneur Yelena Baturina.

BE OPEN has been set up to harness creative brain power through a system of conferences, competitions, exhibitions, master classes and cultural events.”

Call my attention: A Russian philantropist who knows the value of design! And goes for it! That´s amazing!

She clearly states ” we want to promote growth and progress not through engineering or science, but through creativity – and design in particular – which could become a key component to social development and is already so integral to our lives.”

West – Male- Capitalists – Philantropists should be ashamed!

Gates foundation, where are you?
