Eindhoven [ENA] During Dutch Design Week (DDW, 19 to 27 October) international experts, makers, designers, users and change agents in Eindhoven will take on the challenge of tackling current social issues differently. For each of the six themes – Safety, Circular & Biobased Building, Sustainable Design, Health, Mobility and Water – a World Design Embassy will be established offering a programme with exhibitions, presentations, works

lectures and debates. Each embassy will also organise a conference, where the relevant issue will be explored in great depth. Embassies for the future From climate change, undermining and mobility to circularity, healthcare and water: our growing world population cannot escape the dilemmas in all these themes. What kind of future do we want? How do we design that future? World Design Embassies (WDE) searches for answers to these questions. WDE will reach its highpoint during Dutch Design Week (19 to 27 October) in Eindhoven. The public and professionals are welcome to view the exhibitions and actively participate in the programme.
