Design for Good is a platform to build and sustain the implementation
of design thinking for social change. This platform creates
opportunities for designers to build their practice, their network, and
their visibility. Design for Good recognizes the wide range of designers’ work and
leadership in social change which benefits the world, our country and our communities.
Design for Good supports and sustains designers who play a catalytic
role in communities through projects that create positive social impact.
By connecting and empowering designers through online networking tools,
inspirational stories, chapter events, training, national
advocacy and promotion, Design for Good serves as a powerful resource
for designers who wish to work in this area and a beacon for designers
leading the charge.
