Be Part of the Programme and Improve the World through Design

The projects showcased in this site are school projects. We use them in our courses which teach students about design. If you teach design students, and would like to use any of these projects in your curriculum, please feel free to download any of the content and supporting files. If you do use any of the projects, upload your version of it once its complete (along with all you students documentation, references, working files and photos) so that we can grow our database of uber cool community engagement projects. Or, even better, upload one of your community related design projects, along with the brief, documentation, reference and photographs, so that another school might be able to benefit a community in another part of the world through your contribution.

Feel free to offer any comment or feedback on the successes and weakness of existing projects, and as an international design education community, we can resolve and improve projects sothat they can be implemented properly and make the world a better place.
