European Design Upgrade: transnational capacity building

Concept https://edupgrade.design/en/

We have launched a new international project — European Design Upgrade (EDU) for a community of designers from Ukraine, Belgium, and Finland. Participants of our project will be able to implement their unique concepts and present them at the international level.

Many of the past creations which are now considered commonplace were bold discoveries at the time. Today, the need for design has grown more than ever. There is a demand for new sources of energy and food, the modern ways for the organization of urban life, the creation of new materials, and waste recycling require contemporary solutions. Polluted water and air, the emergence of new diseases, the loneliness of people in the information flow, the rapid development of digital technologies are difficult but important tasks to tackle for our society.

We see a huge potential in the evolution of creativity and design in our country. That is why the K.Fund, together with its Ukrainian partner GoLOCAL, Finnish partner Urban Mill and the Belgian Creative Brussels, launched the European Design Upgrade educational initiative.
