About Design 21: Social Design Network
The Network is where members of the design community, socially conscious individuals, local governments, businesses and non-profit organizations (NPOs) can address social concerns and create smart solutions through design. It is a place where like-minded people can connect to share resources, inspire each other and take action.
The Network seeks to explore the relationship between design and society. Its fundamental belief is that design should be more than an aesthetic exercise since it has the potential to improve the way that people live and interact in their communities.
