About Design a Better World

If you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation to do something about it.

Rep. John Lewis

Design a Better World is a website built around ideas in the book, "Make the World a Better Place: Design with Passion, Purpose, and Values".  The purpose of both is to promote designs of all sorts that make the world a better place.  The plan is to:

  1. Identify designs that improve the world by reducing harm, increasing happiness and well-being, advancing knowledge and agency, promoting equality, addressing injustice, or building supportive relationships.

  2. Disseminate information, through print or online media, on designs that improve the world.

  3. Identify areas of need and post challenges for designs that improve the world.

  4. Conduct classes, workshops, webinars, or give lectures that teach methods designers can use that make their designs more likely to have impact, to be adopted, and to have a positive impact on the world.

  5. Facilitate the efforts of designers who are trying to make the world a better place.

  6. Collaborate with organizations that have a similar purpose.
