How do we cope with the great economic, ecological and social challenges of our time?
The special exhibition presents projects and products by international and national designers that are looking for answers to today's questions.

International projects in the areas of Urban Space and Landscape, Housing, Education, Work, Production, Migration, Networks and Environment give an insight into the work of Social Design.

The featured initiatives were selected on the basis of criteria such as their social and design qualities, the transparency of the associated process, the dialogue with and participation by those involved in the project and their empowerment towards building their own livelihoods, the transformation of social conditions, and the sustainability of the project results.
