Due to the onset of the COVID19 crisis and in in accordance with the decisions taken by the French government, the WDC 2020 organizing committee postpones all events under its direct responsibility which were to take place within the framework of the World Design Capital in the coming weeks, until further notice.

Comprised of 90 communes, Lille Metropole is the seventh title holder of the World Design Capital® designation. Lille Metropole has a unique and innovative programme to share with the world, one that reflects the diversity and dynamism of design projects in the region.
