In today's world, where environmental, social, economic, and cultural problems are becoming increasingly complex, design can be a powerful problem-solving tool. Since design thinking requires both analytical and creative cognitive skills, it can be used not only to identify and deconstruct problems but also to find innovative solutions. Combined with a participatory approach, these effective problem-solving methods of design can be utilized to contribute to the idea of peaceful coexistence.

We are aware of the importance of young designers and architects to have the necessary training to contribute to the well being of our world as future professionals and leaders. Together with our partners, professionals, and academics, we aim to create an inspiring research and design process that implement innovative decision-making strategies, and production methods.
We work for our participants to become competent in utilizing design as a tool to identify, deconstruct, and solve problems.
Through the collective activity and exchange between students, professors, experts, partners, and non-governmental organizations, Design+Peace strives to create universal design-based solutions for various pressing global issues. Focus is put on the production of knowledge and producing applicable solutions concerning location, setting, and resources.
An interdisciplinary team of academicians and practicing professionals will lead the workshops and lecture series, provide design briefings, training and guidance to the participating students.
Along with providing research and training to the participants, we aim the final project to have a viable product in place, which will be developed further if necessary, and realized afterward.
All of the projects will have to meet the minimum requirements to be laid out, featuring a fine, locally rooted, tech-supported design that renders innovative-yet-grounded solutions.
We seek projects and design processes integrating collaboration, leadership, and creativity while addressing real-world problems.
