BWxD is a student-led initiative at Brown and RISD that celebrates interdisciplinary collaboration between designers, educators, innovators, and learners.
WHO WE ARE
Better World by Design is a student-led initiative at Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design that celebrates interdisciplinary collaboration between designers, educators, innovators, and learners. We envision a world where design-thinking is accessible to everyone in order to catalyze positive change on a local and global scale.
WHAT WE DO
During the year, we facilitate workshops, panels, and discussions that engage in and promote design. Our year builds up to an annual 3-day conference that reinvigorates these ideas and inspires us to continue these conversations.
In 2008, a group of engineers from Brown and designers from Rhode Island School of Design founded Better World by Design with the aspiration of merging their fields to solve social problems from a holistic perspective. Over the years, Better World by Design has continued to expand its reach, while fostering a close partnership between Brown, RISD, and the Providence community.
