SDN Chapter Awards Winners 2019: Congratulations!

The Global Chapter Team and SDN are excited to announce the 4 winners of the SDN Chapter Award. The winner announcement and Award Ceremony took place during the SDGC19 Members Event on October 9, 2019. The awards showcase the amazing impact of the SDN Chapters for our international community and raise awareness about their activities.

A GROWING NETWORK OF PASSIONATE VOLUNTEERS

The SDN is a strong, international network thanks to our amazing chapters. Since 2008, we have grown from 1 to 46 chapters in 38 countries across 6 continents! These chapters are run by teams of passionate volunteers from the service design industry, business and academia. They support their local service design community to grow, flourish and contribute to the global discourse.

This year we would like to especially thank the SDN Canada team for their amazing contribution, collaborating with SDN Global to host the Service Design Global Conference in Toronto!
