The Don Norman Design Award and Conference (DN DAC) is an International program to advance the development of humanity-centered design education and projects that provide evidence of their capability to make significant enhancements to society. The phrase “Humanity-Centered” emphasizes the rights of all of humanity and addresses the entire ecosystem (the term ecosystem includes all living creatures plus the earth’s environment).
DN-DAC has two major activities:
1. Awards to early-career groups and educational organizations;
2. An international conference for humanity-centered design education groups and projects.
The 2024 Awards will be awarded in San Diego, California (USA) as part of the DNDA Conference in Fall 2024 at the World Design Policy Conference.
We’re currently preparing all the details to assist you with your submission. Stay tuned for updates here on the site!
The conference brings together individuals, groups, and educational organizations engaged in Humanity-Centered education or societal projects. The goal is to enable interactions, and networking, coupled with papers, workshops, and demonstrations of work, enabling all to share insights and experiences as well as to honor each year’s award recipients. In addition to talks and demonstrations by award winners we plan a mix of invited activities and peer-reviewed submitted activities, talks, workshops, and demonstration.
The first conference will be held in San Diego, California (USA) in the Fall 2024 as part of the at the World Design Policy Conference. Information about submissions and attendance is being developed.
