About

Today’s most urgent challenges call for a better understanding of how we might heal our fractured relationships with one another and with the natural world. In six years the GID programme has shown how a multidisciplinary design approach with a global perspective can deliver social, environmental, economic and cultural change. The ethos of the programme has grown stronger and clearer in its short life, on values that have never felt so relevant, to matters so urgent: community, wellness, sustainability.

The work we celebrate here proposes practical solutions to real-world issues, and provokes questions where solutions aren’t to be found. Themes range from speculative futures of money, data, agriculture and science itself, to more immediate challenges like youth engagement and education, food and material waste, and mental and physical health. More importantly, we celebrate the individuals, each with their unique personal vision and trajectory. In 2020 we honour 24 students of 11 nationalities from a range of professional and undergraduate specialisms. Their journey has led them via four world-class institutions in Tokyo, New York, Beijing and Singapore, back to London – in spirit if not in person – to complete their double Master's degrees.
