Designing for a Better World

How you as a designer can contribute to positive change

About this session

Designers have the power to create positive impact on the world. By designing for the SDGs, we can contribute to creating a more sustainable and equitable world.

The SDGs are a set of 17 global goals established by the United Nations in 2015. They are intended to be a universal call to action to end poverty and protect the planet. By keeping these goals in mind we can address some of the world's most pressing challenges, such as poverty, inequality, climate change, and wellbeing.

By using our skills to support non-profit organizations or projects with a positive social mission, we can play a crucial role in creating a better world for everyone, making meaningful difference.

What you can expect to learn

  • How we can use design and technology to solve for The Sustainable Development Goals, the world’s most important to-do list
  • How leading with empathy and designing for the world around us can help designers create positive impact, address global challenges and encourage innovation
