Join Humanitarian Designers

Humanitarian Designers is a grassroots NGO. We are registered in France but we have an international online community of +300 members.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between the design and the humanitarian sectors. Funded in 2021, we are growing organically and are still in a learning phase.
If you would like to join our conversations or support our activities, we would be glad to count in!

France design week installation

During the France Design Week 2021, we organised our first event in Paris: “Design et Humanitaire: rencontres, convergences”. During this event, we invited 19 international speakers to start a conversation on “how does design serve the humanitarian sector?”; each feedback were collected and mapped in our installation. it was also a moment of gathering for our Community that met for the first time and made this event possible.

Find the recordings on our Youtube channel.

"We want to inspire designers to not do "business as usual" but rather take a strong ethical stand that follows their inner values."
