mcbw annual theme 2024: „How to co-create with nature“

Together with our partners and other interested parties, we set out to explore the many ways in which design can help us (re-)learn how to work in partnership with nature, to accept it as a co-designer, and to live and grow side by side with it: collaboration instead of domination. To steer these reflections in a distinct direction, we have coined a tagline that sums up our concern and our mission for the future in a nutshell: "How to co-create with nature".

Welcome to mcbw
