Just the bare necessities
Meet our community of change-makers.
These initiatives and start-ups are building a more fair and sustainable society using innovative design. From prototypes to community projects, you’ll find projects in diverse stages of development, drawing from a wide range of strategies — with creativity at their core. Each one joined WDCD’s community through a design Challenge, and it’s WDCD’s role to support them in building their resources, network, skills and knowledge.
Want to get involved with your project, start-up or idea? Check out our Challenge programmes — where the creative community pilots, tests and scales design-driven innovations.
