World Industrial Design Day 2022 marked the 65th anniversary of WDO (formerly known as the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design – Icsid). Reflecting on more than six decades of championing design for a better world, WDO celebrated WIDD 2022 under the theme of leadership, recognizing the many ways in which designers are leading the charge towards a better future.

On 29 June, we hosted a 24-hour livestreamed event, let’s talk: leadership. Highlighting diverse leadership perspectives and insights, this virtual event featured conversations with top design leaders and thinkers as they discussed how they are mobilizing change and driving impact in their communities and around the world.
