The title of this year’s GA is Achieving the SDGs by Design. In line with our vision to create a better world, we decided to embrace the solutions economy and to promote the ways in which design can contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. And as an international non-governmental organization with UN Consultative status, we have the opportunity to make a real difference by influencing decision makers at the highest levels.

At this year’s GA, there will be opportunities for you to share with us the ways in which you are already using design-led innovation to:

Promote responsible consumption and production

Make your cities more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization

Foster innovation that ensures health and well-being

Together, as a united voice, we can build a powerful coalition for positive change, using the SDGs as a framework to guide our work.
