It is a light, no-profit organization, conceived as a network of partners collaborating in a peer-to-peer spirit.It is articulated in several DESIS-Local (that are sub-networks within a specified local area). DESIS-International is therefore the framework where the different DESIS-Local coordinate themselves and where some global initiatives are taken.
DESIS-China aims to actively support design initiatives and projects in the field of design for social innovation and sustainability in China. That is, in the fields of the ecological reconversion of production and consumption systems, the social construction of services, and the balanced development of local areas. (more)
