World Design Capital



World Design Capitals

The WDC designation provides a unique opportunity for cities to showcase the outcomes of their design initiatives, programmes, and the merits of their creative industries internationally. How each designated city takes advantage of this opportunity will vary, as each one will infuse its own unique cultural style and strategy to leverage the WDC designation.

Icsid is committed to working closely with the network of WDC designated cities to further understand the impact of the WDC movement in a manner that will allow the programme to grow and build and international forum for design-effective cities of the world. Creating a network of WDC cities is part of the development strategy and Icsid will continue to build this network as the initiative gathers momentum in years to come.
