In 2012 the Western Cape Government’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism (DEDAT) collaborated with us and other key role-players to develop a Design Strategy to unlock innovation in the province. We have been tasked with driving the implementation of the strategy with a wide range of stakeholders.


A first for South Africa, the Western Cape Design Strategy broadly aims to achieve four things:


Design-ready Businesses
To ensure sectors of the economy and civil society integrate design into their business and organisational practices to unlock innovation, competitiveness and progress

 

Business-ready Design Practitioners
To establish an enabling environment that supports a thriving design ecosystem and a competitive design industry

 

Design in the Public Sector
To ensure the transformation of a public sector into one that embraces design and design-thinking methodology in policy formation and practical implementation across all spheres and tiers of government

 

Involved Citizens
To create public awareness and appreciation as to the value of design in every aspect of our lives, in particular towards socio-economic upliftment and a better quality of life for all.


The CDI has been mandated to play a central role in the coordination and facilitation of the strategy, and to implement 
various projects coming out of it. One
 of these projects is to foster the growth of design competencies and skills in the sector. Another is the Better Living Challenge, a competition to gather and showcase innovative, affordable and green home improvement solutions for low-income living.
