"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
- Albert Einstein
Humanity's problems are propagating faster than the solutions. DeW Labs aims to increase the rate of social impact through innovative design.
DEsign for the World
There will always be deeply committed people working to create positive social impact. They work as individuals and in teams; on broad global projects and on tiny local initiatives; receiving wide recognition and toiling in absolute anonymity; utilizing deep resources and with little more than their bare hands. These people are the heroes of their neighbourhoods; and they are the heroes of the world.
These are the people DeW Labs seeks to empower.
Dew Labs is a collective of designers, engineers, and social scientists who seek to innovate systems in service of the creative visions of those who are working to make our world a better place. We marry creativity with deep expertise to foster process-oriented solutions. We consult on one-off interventions, and we incubate and nurture imaginative projects into robust, self-sustaining programs.
We solve problems for the problem solvers.
Ours is not an "academic" approach, even though our field work is grounded in research and experimentation. Our technical expertise is always deployed to effectuate practical implementation. Whether we are working with individual change-makers or large multilateral institutions (or anyone in between), we are always looking to maximize impact return on humanitarian investment.
