Topic: What is a climate designer

There’s a new kind of designer emerging, those who focus their creative talents towards solving our climate crisis. They are collaborating with others to build out, launch, and promote new climate approaches.

We’re calling them climate designers.

Our mission is two-fold; to encourage and empower designers to use their creative talents towards addressing our climate crisis and to inspire, motivate, and graduate climate designers by providing climate-focused resources for design educators.

Are you one of us?

We are excited to put on our launch party for Meet fellow climate designers and learn more about the project.
