Service Design Day 2023: 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!

As service designers, we recognise the importance of our work in today's challenging times, which is why we're excited to announce that this year's Service Design Day (June 1, 2023) will continue the "Do Good - Give Back" campaign.

The need to reassess how we operate as a society has never been greater as the world continues to cope with the effects that the pandemic and ongoing wars have had on global communities, economies, and social networks.

With its launch, we invite all practitioners, students, agencies, and academics from all across the globe to join in and lend your support to those organisations most in need of your services.

How can I 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
Offer your pro-bono service design skills to an organisation in need!

Join us in the Service Design Day celebration on June 1, 2023! Share your initiatives using hashtags #SDDDAY23 and #ServiceDesignDay and tag us in your posts - they will be shared in our interactive live feed!
