We run Design Change Maker events, where we bring together creative thinkers who are making a positive difference in the world. Some of our past events include Design Change Makers: Mental Health & Mental Health 0.2 and Design Change Makers: Conscience Consumption which was hosted at the Design Museum. We also took part in the Ellen MacArthur foundationDisruptive Innovation Festival in late 2018. In February 2020 we are launching an International Creative Change Makers conference, hosted in London, with some of our amazing partners and keynote speakers including Sir Jonathan Porritt and others.

Impact, Research & Data

Through our annual global awards scheme – we work with creative thinkers to help transform concepts and ideas into real tangible impact. The awards work as a funnel to encourage, reward and acknowledge creative ideas for social change. Over the last eight years whilst working in this realm of ‘social/environmental impact’ we’ve had many testimonies and anecdotal evidence sent our way. Stories of how, when working on projects focused on positive change, people feel a greater sense of purpose, self-esteem and well–being, improving mental health. For the last 18 months, we’ve been gathering research and data to put some hard facts behind these stories. In July we plan to publish these learnings as open source material.
