Pact for Design

Six organisations representing the Spanish design sector promote a “Pact for Design” with the aim of implementing a “National Design Strategy” that will ensure that design, as a tool for innovation and competitiveness and as Spain’s international image, truly plays a strategic role in the transformation our country is facing.

Given the current serious economic crisis, six organisations of the Spanish design sector (READ, Spanish Network of Design Associations; FAD, Fomento de las Artes y del Diseño; BcD, Barcelona Centro de Diseño; Foro de Marcas Renombradas Españolas (FMRE); CADI Centro Aragonés de Diseño Industrial and València Capital Mundial del Diseño 2022) are promoting a “Design Pact” with the aim of achieving greater cohesion in the implementation of a “National Design Strategy” that gives design a strategic role in the economic, social and environmental transformation that our country is demanding.

The objective of this pact is to ensure that design, as a tool for innovation and competitiveness and as Spain’s international image, truly plays a strategic role in the transformation that our country is facing. A strategy that increases the impact of design in the economic and educational spheres, the public sector and society in general. A strategy that articulates the collaboration between the creative sectors and the business fabric and that is endowed with an organisational structure that supports the national design ecosystem, that is an interlocutor and advisor to all public administrations and that is sustainable, regardless of political circumstances.

It is now open to the collection of new signatories through www.pactoporeldiseno.es. Those who adhere to this “Pact for Design” will contribute, from their respective fields, to put design at the service of Spain’s economic, social and environmental recovery and to consolidate it, definitively, as the powerful transversal tool for innovation and transformation that it is.

Design today, on a global scale, is a key tool for the advancement of institutions, corporations, companies and, as a whole, the culture and society of a country. It has the ability to create, innovate and provide solutions that are transversal, sustainable, social and with a high economic impact. Solutions aligned with the “Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan” of the Spanish Government and with the “NextGenerationEU” recovery plan for Europe and the “New European Bauhaus” initiative promoted by the European Commission.
