How might we design healthy, inclusive digital spaces that enable individuals and communities to thrive?
Existing in relationships and communities is core to our identity. You know: the feelings of belonging, mutual support, care, and yes, fun. That was the vision when the Internet first came online. We imagined these stateless, unbounded digital spaces to be a place to connect, share information—thrive.
As creators who care deeply about community and play, we believe it’s time to take proactive responsibility for how we design across games, social media, and other online communities.
That’s where your ingenuity comes in.
Your bold proposals will advance our mission of establishing “thriving” as an outcome for digital spaces and defining the future of healthy, inclusive digital design. You’ll be part of a movement to further innovation in responsible digital design practices in a collaborative community. Participants behind the top proposals will be eligible for awards including funding, featuring in a flagship report, as well as follow-on programming to further develop their ideas.
