OBJECTIVE

On June 1, 2016 we will have the first International Service Design Day! This day will create awareness for service design by having small activities that promote the power of service design all over the world. It's fun, easy, flexible and interactive! We invite EVERYBODY to gather on this day and unite our voices for our common interests. Let's enjoy the sense of belonging and celebrate the art of service design! 

 

 

WHY JUNE 1ST? 

Did you know that the word ‘June’ originates from the Latin meaning of ‘young’? Youth doesn't need to be about age as long as the feeling of excitement, energy and activism are present! This day is all about this spirit! We believe that the service design essence will always stay young, therefore we celebrate its eternal youth on the very first day of the youngest month and the summer; JUNE! 

 

It's fun, easy, flexible and interactive! Let's enjoy the sense of belonging and celebrate the art of service design on June 1st!
