Posted by: Stephen Lamoureux 4 years, 11 months ago


The Summit is a historic gathering of 50 international organizations all with a common objective: developing an international action plan for harnessing the power of design to address pressing global challenges.  International organizations representing interior design, architecture, urban planing and landscape architecture, are coming together for the first time with representatives of intergovernmental and supranational organizations and specialized agencies, such as UNESCO, OECD, UNEP and ICLEI.

The events are being organized by the World Design Summit Organization, headquartered in Montréal, Quebec.Driven by the vision of how design can transform the future, the Congress and the Summit are different, but thematically related, events.  The multi-disciplinary, multi-modal Congress is open to individuals from all design or design-related disciplines: all together under one roof to share perspectives, foster collaboration and cross-pollinate innovative ideas about how design can transform the future.
