DESIGN FOR PLANET
- Published on: 24 September 2021
The UK Design Council has launched Design for Planet – their bold new campaign to galvanise and support the UK’s design industry to commit to a sustainable, climate- first future.
Through Design for Planet, Design Council will rally designers to bring about the societal shifts needed to accelerate the government’s transition to net zero and ensure the planet will thrive for future generations.
Design Council’s work chimes with the UK Government’s One Step Greener campaign to create a mass movement of green steps to culminate in large collective action.
As part of their plans, they will be hosting a landmark in-person and virtual event, the Design for Planet Festival – which will run alongside COP26 on 9-10 November 2021.
This two-day event will give a platform for visionaries across the sector who are leading the way in sustainability and climate action, and will support others in the industry to prioritise the welfare of our planet in their work.
Design for Planet will welcome over 100 invited experts and be live-streamed to thousands of online participants and aims to galvanise the 1.69m-strong UK design community to address the climate emergency. It recognises the fundamental need to redesign our lives to save our planet and champions the power and responsibility of designers to shape a better world.
