The New Design Congress looks to the future by confronting the gap between society’s understanding of what appears to be happening and what is actually happening in today’s digital systems.
New Design Congress now works 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 identifying and including voices of those who have thus far been excluded, our work will produce robust, 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 daring solutions built on solid foundations that embrace complexity and resilience to inform positive change.
If you believe that digital systems must change, join us and share in creating these solutions.
