The Design Can Change pledge

The pledge is intended to be workable—something you can actually do today. It isn’t intended to be restrictive or overly dogmatic; instead, it is a set of commitments that you can easily adapt to your daily practice.


In my professional practice, I will endeavor to:

Learn: Engage in the topic and seek to understand the issue
Think: Make a sustainable mindset second nature
Act: Put my knowledge to use in my daily work
Inform: Share information and build awareness for sustainability
Unite: Spark change through collective strength

“Designers oriented in this direction . . . are concerned in helping people to find their way, to understand what is required of them, to grasp new processes and to use instruments and machines more easily.” - Jock Kinneir. Photo: EC6310-001 Reza Estakhrian/courtesy of Getty Images
