Vision and Mission

Our Vision

Design is a driving force of sustainable development and cultural change. Sustainability is integrated in the processes of all design disciplines and a part of the DNA of every designer. Economic growth as the key driver of innovation has been replaced by the needs of nature and humans. Design fosters individual well-being and human development through environmentally sound, fair and socially just solutions. Designers identify the potentials of sustainability and transform them into societal benefits.

Our Mission

We continuously promote sustainable design research, make existing knowledge applicable and tangible designing innovate and sustainable solutions. We raise awareness for and inform about sustainable design and support all actors involved in the design process implementing all aspects of sustainable design in their daily work and their solutions. We perform projects on our own and foster and support external projects providing our expertise and our network
