The Asia-Pacific Climate Week (APCW) is an annual event evolved from the Carbon Forums organized by the Nairobi Framework Partnership (NFP) since 2007 and grown to cover all topics related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

To reflect this, in 2017, the NFP launched the regional climate weeks as an overarching platform for stakeholders to meet, share experiences and best practices, as well as to identify mutually beneficial climate action and policy-making related to implementing and achieving the Paris Agreement.

The business of design is in a state of flux. The roles, the tasks and the personae of designers are changing.

No longer the technical expert, the heroic aesthete or the inspired individual of our earlier modern past, the contemporary designer draws upon dispersed sources of creativity and innovation. Collaboration, today, is key. For design practitioners, a central paradox of our times is the increasing specialization, on the one hand, but on the other, the need for more broad-ranging and holistic integration of design tasks, working between and across design disciplines. Design is becoming an ever-more social, indeed sociable, process


The imperative to collaborate, moreover, extends well beyond the domain of professional interaction and working in design teams. It also extends to the relationship with the users, clients and consumers of design. Designers today need to build deeply collaborative relationships with their ‘public’. Participatory design and user-centered design are just two key phrases that capture the spirit of this imperative.


Our DesignDays 2016 conferences are designed for independent businesses, owners of small and medium enterprises and company directors.
The Company, which is based in the USA, works towards developing a wide range of professional tools to suit its customer base.

Design discourse

Designers need to able to ‘do’ a multimodal professional design discourse. They must speak and write their way through complex collaborations with co-designers and interactions with users. They need to be able to ‘do’ visualization as they explore design alternatives through mental images and picture their visions into reality. They need to be able to represent spatial realities, prefiguring the three dimensional through the two dimensional and turning plans into tactile artifacts, manipulable objects, architectural spaces and navigable landscapes. The new, digital media provide newly flexible and accessible tools for multimodal and synaesthetic thinking.


Design’s modalities are also in a state of flux, its working tools of representation, communication, visualization and imagination. Digitization of text, sound, and still and moving image is one important site of transition. This has spawned new practices of modeling and simulation, of prefiguring the real in the virtual. It has also introduced the virtual as a design end-in-itself.


Organization of a Design Days Conference series is a result of the continued policy and continuous learning process, connecting researchers and practitioners attempting to understand better the problems they are trying to address.


13th–17th of November 2023 | Persada Johor International Convention Centre
