UNESCO Design Cities Network

Details

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network is a global community of cities that are using culture and creativity to advance the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

We’re one of 40 Cities of Design, along with Montreal, Helsinki, Seoul, Istanbul, and many others.

Each city is unique, but we are all leveraging the power of design to make our communities happier, healthier places for everyone.

Being part of this network allows us to learn from one another, collaborate on projects, and provide a platform to showcase our design talent to the world.

In a world struck by a pandemic, we must reconsider our priorities. What is the significance and function of design today? How does a discipline often associated with luxury, style, or beauty help communities of the world to deal with today‘s challenges, adapt to changed conditions, and ensure the safety and connections between people? What is the role of design and designers in “rebooting” the world?
