About

WDC 2024 Program

Beyond  Boundaries, is a 2 day conference that provides a global platform for the evolution and exchange of ideas, insights and best practices from different countries, regions, and cities actively involved in developing, launching, and maintaining effective design-led urban policies, via panels, workshops and a signal speaker series.

Its aim is to shape the future and enhance the well-being of urban inhabitants.

As the world changes, policy will evolve too.  Join us as we seek to move beyond boundaries to design a better future.

Can designing policy re-shape our world?

It is clear that a diversity of perspectives, from youth, to indigenous elders, to interdisciplinary thought leaders can provide new ways of thinking and doing.
