The Designers Accord

The Designers Accord is a global coalition of designers, educators, and business leaders working together to create positive environmental and social impact. This year the focus was on the meaning of Social Innovation, how it is defined and how it can be facilitated within communities. We heard about some great community driven initiatives and research projects from the likes of Gustavo De Oca at Hackney City Farm and fellow Northumbria Design for Industry alumni Mike Smart. All in all it was an inspiring evening filled with engaging discussion and constructive debate.
