Sustainability provocateur and cultural protagonist Leyla Acaroglu challenges people to think differently about how the world works. As an award-winning designer, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Champion of the Earth, sociologist and entrepreneur, she 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 change through creative interventions and systems thinking. Acaroglu is the founder of Disrupt Design, the UnSchool and the CO Project Farm in Portugal
