Dr. Leyla Acaroglu challenges people to think differently about how the world works.
As an award winning designer, UNEP Champion of the Earth, social scientist and entrepreneur, Leyla developed the Disruptive Design Method and designs cerebrally activating experiences, gamified toolkits, and unique educational experiences that help people make the status quo obsolete. Her mainstage TED talk on sustainability has been viewed over a million times, and she leads presentations around the world on activating positive social and environmental change through creative interventions. She is the founder of the UnSchool of Disruptive Design, and two design agencies, Disrupt Design and Eco Innovators.
In 2016, United Nations Environment named Leyla Champion of the Earth for her pioneering work in science and innovation for sustainability and social change.
