Kate Goodwin is a Design & Research Specialist at Democratic Society (Demsoc). Based in Berlin, she works in Demsoc’s climate programme as part of the Research & Design team, helping to evolve the theory and practice of ‘climate democracy’. She also works on climate action programmes with government and civil society partners across Europe on topics including energy transition and nature-based solutions. She uses design to experiment with ways for people to make sense of complexity, to see the systems and processes around them, and where they hold the power to make change.
Prior to joining Demsoc, Kate worked as a strategic and user experience designer for consultancies Paper Giant and Health Wallace in Melbourne, Australia, in areas of social impact, criminal and disability justice, community legal education, social impact, and financial services. She was also a designer in a Australia-US higher education software product team.
