World Design Weeks is a force for openness.
In these times of uncertainty, we need new ideas on how to improve our economy and our societies, and design can be the answer.
New thoughts and ideas only emerge when we’re open and collaborative.
We reach out, throwing our arms wide, and invite new members to join our global design family. We believe in unity and inclusivity.
Our identity is inspired by the tilt of the Earth’s axis: a fundamental aspect of our planet that affects all of us, whoever and wherever we may be. It reminds us we are all the same. And it reminds us that the simplest detail can change the world.
