Embassy of Inclusive Society
Inclusivity is not achieved by talking about one specific theme or subgroup, it is about a set of values, perspectives, attitudes and practices that can take us further towards a more just society. That is what the Embassy of Inclusive Society is researching.
Embassy of Safety
The Embassy of Safety investigates how design and policy can come together in the safety domain. Together we search for alternative ways of thinking and finding new solutions to make our society as safe as possible.
Embassy of Health
Discover surprising coalitions that make society healthier.
Embassy of Mobility
Mobility is a necessity, not a goal. You depend on it to get the care you need, to get to work, or to relax with your family. And there are many more examples.
Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building
Sometimes it feels like an impasse: the enormous climate challenge on the one hand and the enormous construction task on the other. As the Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building, we take up this challenge. We – designers, entrepreneurs, researchers and policymakers – investigate possible solutions and offer new perspectives in the field of circular and biobased design, construction and living.
Embassy of Water
In everyday life, we have continuous contact with water. That is often self-evident but after a visit to the Embassy of Water, you never take that water for granted again. Be amazed by a new perspective on water.
Embassy of Food
This year, we will focus on a critical analysis of the food design discipline. We will research promising food projects with which designers raise questions about our current food system or about our role as consumers, and yet did not make it to the shelves of the supermarket. The findings will be presented in the supermarket of the future at Dutch Design Week (DDW).
Embassy of Rethinking Plastic
Plastic causes environmental problems, but the material also has its advantages. It’s not black or white. We must think differently about plastic and reconsider the way we are accustomed to treat it. Designers play a crucial role in that necessary change.
