How can designers use their skills in a meaningful way and fulfil their responsibility towards society and the environment? This question was at the heart of the Design for Good project, because we live in a world of abundance where design often causes more harm than it solves.
To change this, Design for Good shows what design can achieve and connects designers with non-profit organisations so they can learn from each other and improve the world together. Through an intelligent matching system, designers are connected to projects that are a perfect fit for them. They are empowered to recognise their strengths, engage in everyday good work and develop personally and professionally in the process.
For non-profit organisations, Design for Good is primarily about educating them about the opportunities that design offers. They get competent support to master challenges, discover potentials and develop creative solutions.
