Why Design Now?: Ripple Effect


Why? Over 1.3 billion people worldwide drink unsafe water. Ripple Effect, a collaboration between the Acumen Fund, IDEO, and Indian and Kenyan water organizations, stimulates innovation among water suppliers. In Indias Thar Desert region, the Jal Bhagirathi Foundation developed a new business model to convince communities to purchase treated water. In the Andhra Pradesh region, WaterHealth International has used entertainment-based education to encourage the community to use clean water.

Social Impact Design: From Idea to Implementation

Design Thinking for Educators


One of Cooper-Hewitt’s missions is to aid educators in seeing themselves and their students as designers. One of the ways we work toward this goal is through our Educator Resource Center, an online resource for K-12 educators, which hosts lesson plans, a conversation board, and videos of design experts speaking about best practices in design-based education.
