What design can do challenge program
Innovative design solutions for today’s most pressing issues
We challenge the international design community to come up with innovative design solutions for the big questions of our world. Participants range from young professionals to creatives, designers, students, social entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Participants are provided with researched background information and a rich briefing. From there we journey down a 6 phase process to go from idea to tangible products and business cases.
By working together with international partners like IKEA Foundation, UNHCR, UNFCCC, WWF, Autodesk Foundation, Social Enterprise NL, Impact Hub and STBY we aim to built a community of experts and investors that will help make the wonderful ideas form the design community come to live.
