DESIGN 21 is committed to finding solutions to social problems using design. We administer UNESCO-partnered design competitions that focus on issues ranging from environment and poverty to education and health. We are proud to support DESIGN GREEN NOW and be a part of its efforts to promote social design to students nationwide.
About - Nearly everything we come into contact with everyday is the result of the creativity and hard work of a designer. Imagine a world where designers strive to be responsible, incorporating social issues into their overall mission. Welcome to DESIGN 21: Social Design Network; an online community created in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO, we promote better design for the greater good. For more than 10,000 designers who are socially conscious and 200 organizations globally, DESIGN 21 serves as a platform to show the world their positive impact.
