Social Design? Social Innovation? What exactly does that mean? Which approach, what practice and what potential is behind this? The social Design Elevation Days 2015 want to adress that subject by converting the Impact Hub Munich for five Days into the European anchor – and pivoting point of social design.

Exemplary projects from the most diverse areas, an exhibition, the main actors and key figures will be present in Munich these days. Each day of the event will be dedicated to a different motto – so for example, architecture, migration, products, design, behavioral changes and many more will be adressed.


Here the official Trailer of: Social Design “building bridges – humanity” by eyetrip and madevision, which is at the same time the teaser for the Social Design Elevation Days. Scroll down for the programme of the Elevation Days.

Here an overview of the programm. For further information click on the events!
