Mila van Rijs

Design Researcher (and Social Design)

I like talking, but I enjoy listening more. Going out there in the field, observing and connecting with people, trying to unravel the systems they interact with is what motivates me every time. This is where I think design can bring unexpected surprises and support us in complex societal and sustainability issues. Researching and philosophizing why it is happening helps me to understand what is really going on. Or can we ever really know?
