Why is design crucial in the transition to a fair and sustainable world? This November 4, What Design Can Do is joining the UNFCCC at COP26 for a workshop exploring the role of design for climate action.

What Design Can Do believes design and the creative community play a crucial role in finding effective climate solutions. During this session – hosted at the UNFCCC pavilion and streamed online –  we will explore how investments in design innovation and creative climate policies can help us achieve lasting impact.
