About the conference
Design-led urban policies are increasingly recognized as critical to shaping the future prosperity and wellbeing of a city and its inhabitants. The World Design Policy Conference provides a global platform for the exchange of ideas, insights, and best practices from different countries, regions, and cities that are developing, launching, and maintaining effective design policy.
A live in-person meeting in Valencia, one of the Signature Events of the World Design Capital 2022, with the mediterranean city at the international spotlight as a pole of attraction for foreign investments seeking opportunities thanks to its development and stability.
The findings and conclusions of this Conference have the potential to set the foundation for a design-led legacy programme that benefits both the design community and mainly the citizens, and that resonates far beyond the designated WDC year. A content that can influence existing policies facilitating a legacy in political management.
