DESIGN FOR HUMANITY BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF DESIGN TO SOLVE SOCIAL WICKED PROBLEMS.

We believe that optimism, empathy and creativity can lead to outside-the-box solutions for complex social issues. That’s why Design for Humanity connects young designers with experts, governments, companies and civil society organizations. Together we develop creative, sustainable and innovative solutions for user-centered products, methods and services.

HOW WE WORK

Design for Humanity works according to a year cycle with a different theme every year.

The year consists of five phases in which we use design thinking techniques and the fresh perspective of young designers to find creative and sustainable new ideas for a wicked problem.

Central event is our Social Innovation Challenge, which takes place during the Dutch Design Week.

This is a huge brainstorming session with about 80 student designers who contribute with their creative minds to society. An inspiring day full of energy and positivity!

DESIGNING DEMOCRACY

Unexpected elections results, fake news, Trump, Brexit, populism, radicalism… Our democracy is in transition! What can design thinking do to make democracy relevant again to today’s society?

We think democracy could use the fresh perspective of young designers! Together with creatives, governments, NGO’s, companies and civil organizations, we will find innovative ideas to make every voter co-decision maker, co-creator and co-producer again and bring back the belief in one of the best ideas humanity ever had: democracy, as a manner to bring the power to the people.

On July 10, we kick off the new program in Pakhuis De Zwijger.
