About the Event
World Industrial Design Day (WIDD) is celebrated throughout the world on 29th June. First declared in 2007 by the World Design Organization™ (WDO) for its 50th anniversary, WIDD increases awareness of the profession of industrial design and champions the power of design to strengthen economic, social, cultural, and environmental development.
Our celebration, links industrial design to the global theme for WIDD 2017, Thinking Outside the Box, and focuses on UN Sustainable Development Goal: Responsible Consumption & Production and Role of Design in Manufacturing Sustainability.
