World Design Impact Prize 2013·2014

The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) has launched the World Design Impact Prize 2013·2014.

The World Design Impact Prize (WDIP) is a biennial award, which recognises projects from around the globe that use industrial design focused solutions to improve our social, economic and environmental quality of life.

The biennial award builds on Icsid’s vision of »designing for a better world«, by encouraging initiatives that are pushing the boundaries of design in general and industrial design in particular by incorporating human centred research, design thinking and co-design lenses into their projects. By recognising and empowering grassroots projects that utilise emerging practices such as social entrepreneurship, micro-financing, eco-design, and designing for the bottom of the pyramid, the World Design Impact Prize stimulates discussions around design policy, reverse innovation, universal design, and designing for resilience.
