UAL Social Design Institute
Championing research and practice in social design and design for sustainability
The UAL Social Design Institute is a new institute that uses research insights to change how designers and organisations design.
We connect UAL staff and students with external partners who are working in social and sustainable design. Our mission is to make a positive social and environmental difference.
In its first year, the Institute is experimenting with different ways to link up UAL with organisations and partners in:
- teaching and learning
- knowledge exchange
Find out more about what we do, what's happening, how you can work with us and get in touch.
