Three Work Groups Announced
The Work Groups are intended to provide an effective framework to address the complicated issues facing professional designers and institutions and to collaboratively establish next steps for the Council.
ico-D Professional Members are invited to appoint representatives to each Work Group by registering by 30 April.
Members can sign up and participate under the following themes:
Certification and professional development
National Design Policy
Communicating the value of design
An online framework will be established for each Work Group where participants will share materials and conduct discussions. Each Work Group will be chaired by a Chairperson appointed by the ico-D Board who will be accompanied by a Board liaison.
The outcomes of the ProfPM Work Groups will be presented at the Professional Platform Meeting in Gwangju, alongside the International Design Congress (2015 IDC) and the ico-D 26 General Assembly.
