A 1-day workshop will be held to tackle local issues with the power of design on the theme of sustainable consumption and production!

World Industrial Design Day (WIDD) is an international day of observance celebrated throughout the world in recognition of the establishment of the World Design Organization (WDO) on 29 June.

This year, WDO and the team at Global Goals Jam have joined forces to launch the first World Industrial Design Day 2019 Mini-Jam (designathon) under the theme of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.

The global design community is invited to explore local challenges and identify ways design can help ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns by “doing more and better with less”.

“Achieving economic growth and sustainable development requires that we urgently reduce our ecological footprint by changing the way we produce and consume goods and resources. Agriculture is the biggest user of water worldwide, and irrigation now claims close to 70 percent of all freshwater for human use.

The efficient management of our shared natural resources, and the way we dispose of toxic waste and pollutants, are important targets to achieve this goal. Encouraging industries, businesses and consumers to recycle and reduce waste is equally important, as is supporting developing countries to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption by 2030.”
