Statement of intent

I have been managing design initiatives globally, these include various industries, NGOs, societies, national government projects. In the past 14 years, organizing several international design events such as Design Turkey, Design Evaluation Systems for Ministry of Trade and Turkish Exports Assembly. I have been deeply engaged in integrating designers with the government and industry. These collaborations bring awareness of SDGs through responsible production and consumption in various sectors. There are approaches that can implement responsible production and responsible consumption criteria. We need to assess this power, which is very important to our planet. As an experienced design professional, I can bring my more than 30 years of expertise of managing industries and influencing government design initiatives to WDO and if elected as a Board Member again I would work with the President and the board to support WDO objectives during this term.
