SDG Design Projects

SDG design manual thinking

In order to create a sustainable world for all, we will need to change a lot of aspects in our lives and societies. To combat the climate change for instance (SDG13), we will have to shift our energy sources and change the way we produce, use and discard our belongings (SDG12). The SDG´s invite us to reinvent our world, and that´s why they form an ideal search field for innovation. We offer design projects for the creation of products, services or product-service combinations, finding solutions that address the SDG´s within the business area of our clients. During the projects, we alternative participative workshops with internal phases of product development.
