Service Design Day 2024: Do Good - Give Back!

On June 1, the service design community will come together in recognition of Service Design Day, an occasion designed to acknowledge the power of service design! Join us in celebration!

In a world facing unprecedented challenges, it's clear that now is the time for us to come together and reimagine how we operate as a society. Despite the hurdles posed by the pandemic and ongoing conflicts, we see immense opportunity for positive change.

As service designers, we understand the pivotal role our work plays in shaping a brighter future. That's why we're thrilled to announce the continuation of our "Do Good - Give Back" campaign for this year's Service Design Day, on June 1, 2024.

In light of Service Design Day falling on Saturday, June 1st, 2024, we're happy to extend the celebration of the service design, and invite you all to plan your activities from May 31st to June 5th!

How can You participate?

  • Host an event or an online meetup, workshop or training for your local community around the topic of service design
  • Hold a discussion/lightning talk on how service design can help society and contribute to the common good
  • Have an "open door" event or a service design exhibition and invite students, NGOs, charities or community service organisations to your office
  • Empower service providers to utilise service design, talk about service design tools and methods and discuss the implementation of service design for the greater good

Join us in the Service Design Day celebration from May 31 until June 7, 2024! Share your initiatives using hashtags #SDDAY24 and #ServiceDesignDay and tag us in your posts - they will be shared in our interactive live feed!
