The Designers Accord launches new website

logo_DAThe Designers Accord has just launched a new website. The new site offers case studies, initiatives, events and more. Join the Designers Accord to take action and to commit yourself and your organization to responsible practices.  

“The Designers Accord is the global coalition of designers, educators, and business leaders working together to create positive environmental and social impact.

The Designers Accord started with a call-to-action dubbed the “Kyoto Treaty” for design in July 2007. Since then, almost 200,000 members of the creative community, representing each design discipline, have joined the movement.

Adopters of the Designers Accord commit to five guidelines that provide collective and individual ways to take action. Becoming a member of the Designers Accord provides access to a community of peers that shares methodologies, resources, and experiences around environmental and social issues in design.”

The Designers Accord asks that “[a]ll adopters, supporters, and endorsers follow a basic code of conduct: Do no harm; Communicate and collaborate; Keep learning, keep teaching; Instigate meaningful change; Make theory action”
