What Design Can Do


What Design Can Do (WDCD) is an international platform that uses design as a tool for ecological and social change. WDCD launched the No Waste Challenge, their third climate action challenge in partnership with the IKEA Foundation.

This global design competition focuses on the impact of waste and consumerism on climate change. Designers and creative entrepreneurs around the world are invited to submit innovative solutions to reduce waste and to re-design our systems of extraction, production, and consumption to be less destructive or even to make them restorative.

KCL organization was responsible for running the Kenya trail and was part of the committee that spearheaded the global competition directing other cities.

Our team leader was also on the jury for the No Waste Challenge.
