The New Design Congress confronts the future by confronting the gap between society’s flawed understanding of what appears to be happening and what is actually happening in today’s digital systems.

In 2022 and beyond, New Design Congress will work with universities, internet subcultures, at-risk communities, companies, non-profits, environmentalists, policy makers and technologists to produce ambitious alternative forks: new paradigms for digital identity, digital information and integrity, digital economic self-sovereignty and digital climate intervention. In looking to the past and listening to those who have thus far been excluded from mobilisation, our work will produce real-world methods and tools for intervening in societal hotspots before they become raging wildfires. Our work speaks for itself: investment in New Design Congress is an investment in new, provocative solutions built on solid foundations that embrace complexity and resilience to inform new local trajectories.
