Last modified: June 30, 2008, 11:02 AM


INDEX: is a global non-profit network organization that focuses on Design to Improve Life – e.g. design that substantially improves important aspects of human life – worldwide.

Through a wide range of activities and events, INDEX: is the catalyst for Design to Improve Life: an organization that spurs public and professional awareness of the great – and too often unnoticed – human and commercial potential of Design to Improve Life.

INDEX: presents the best examples of Design to Improve Life, awards the very best and provides access to the underlying processes, thinking and people by:

• PRESENTING international design exhibitions displaying Design to Improve Life.
• HOSTING summits for world leaders on design and innovation.
• PUBLISHING and distributing knowledge about Design to Improve Life.
