Background on Design to Improve Life Goals

The Design to Improve Life Goals were identified from a detailed internal strategy where we, the entire team, interviewed over 100 experts from all over the world. Our aim was to identify impending challenges, as well as new trends and technologies with potential for solving these issues. We compiled and analyzed this data and identified five new goals that are not exclusively covered in the current 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
