World Industrial Design Day™ (WIDD) is an international day of observance celebrated annually on 29 June to highlight the impact of industrial design on the betterment of life. Designers around the globe mark the day with activities such as panel discussions, workshops, design competitions, exhibits, gallery installations, networking events and more.

For WIDD 2019, the global design community is invited to explore local challenges and identify ways design can help ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns by “doing more and better with less”, in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.

On the occasion of WIDD 2019, WDO is pleased to partner with Global Goals Jam to launch the first WIDD Mini-Jam (designathon) – a one-day event where design teams will work in short sprints to explore ways design can address local challenges around SDG12.
Find details on the event, instructions on how to participate, a toolkit and other downloadable material on the official Mini-Jam page. Check out our FAQs or contact us for more information.
