Design for Human FutureBarcelona Design Week
Barcelona Design Week is coming back from October 16th to 28th with a very special edition, number 18, our coming of age. In addition, it will be an edition that, for the first time, will be expressly associated with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals declared by the United Nations.
Facing a global scenario marked by uncertainty, complexity and volatility, design is a key element for people's present and future, to create a human future. In this sense, this year we have set ourselves a clear goal, to launch a global initiative to promote SDG goal number 18, and it becomes our motto: Design for Human Future
Halfway to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda, launched in 2015, now is the time to take a realistic view of what has been achieved so far and what reminds to be done. It is for this reason that we at Barcelona Design Week believe that it's time to give design the importance it deserves by launching this transversal initiative.
We are the first design week associated with the Sustainable Development Goals.
