Interaction Latin America: Growing from a place of strength. This edition of ILA, we focus our gaze in a tiny country, with a population barely over 5 million inhabitants.

Our country inspires peace, environmental protection, and happiness. With 6% of the world’s biodiversity, it inspires design. From San José, ILA20 will open up space for a conversation around the impact of design in the Latin American region."
