Design is no longer about aesthetics and embellishment. Today, it is one of the most crucial tools we have to address the world’s greatest challenges – a concept we call ‘Design to Improve Life’.

To provide the knowledge and network you need to become a process leader in Design to Improve Life, INDEX: Design to Improve Life® will be hosting an exclusive course. The course will be held in our beautiful 18th-century houses and courtyard in the center of Copenhagen.

Who is this program designed for?

  • Young creatives
  • Designers and developers
  • Business leaders and decision makers

The four-day intensive course will teach participants how to design sustainable solutions to address local and global challenges. Our foundation will be the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and our own certified Design to Improve Life Education methods. The knowledge and design-based tools offered in the course can be applied to almost any practice or local context.

Throughout the course, we will lean on the design vision of our former INDEX: Award jury member, the late Professor John Heskett:

“Design is the human capacity to shape and make our environment in ways that satisfy our needs and give meaning to our lives.”
