Towards a sustainable future through design


The WSDF Secretariat reaches out to mobilize the broader design, architecture and urban planning community to contribute solutions for our century's greatest social, economic, cultural and environmental challenges.


This initiative to optimize our collective transformation potential is characterized by its inclusivity and openness.

The WSDF Secretariat also undertakes to equip designers, architects and urban planners with the means to act as essential agents in the development and implementation of processes as well as to identify "sustainable" resources in their practices and interactions with decision makers.
