About World Design Embassies

World Design Embassies is a programme in which design is used to develop new perspectives and tangible solutions for social challenges. At World Design Embassies we take a human-centred approach to developing visions, products and services to meet current and future needs. We do this by bringing together issues such as health, safety, mobility, sustainable products and services, building and living, technology, urgent issues related to water, climate change and food in embassies for the future. WDE is a year-round programme organised by Dutch Design Foundation and partners and culminates with exhibitions and events during Dutch Design Week.
