Choose positive change over profit.

In our profit-driven world, many of our business decisions will have negative consequences. Who pays the price? Our planet and the most marginalized people on it.

What if you could stop this cycle? What if you could find new ways to design and innovate without creating harm? That's where design for positive change comes into the picture.
