About Us

MIT D-Lab works with people around the world to develop and advance collaborative approaches and practical solutions to global poverty. D-Lab is a pioneer in design for development training and education, with over 15 years of experience in building community capacity for innovation and problem solving. D-Lab uses a participatory design approach that challenges traditional notions of who can play a role in designing solutions to global development challenges. D-Lab’s mission is pursued through interdisciplinary courses, research in collaboration with global partners, technology development, and community initiatives — all of which emphasize experiential learning, real-world projects, community-led development, and scalability. These integrated programs work together to design for a more equitable world.
