When we talk about inclusion we talk about belonging. People with different abilities or gender or age situations are strongly affected by this. The Design for Peace initiative aims for inclusion, designing to reduce violence and designing hope. That is, spaces, models, objects that help the integration of people, improve behavior and cultural situations that affect minorities.

Design can imagine new futures and can design and materialize them. The imaginative and creative power that Design offers manages to generate significant changes.

In the initiative, three Universities work under this philosophy, Universidad Anáhuac México, Universidad CETYS Tijuana and Universidad Politécnica de Torino.

Borders are not only material, they are also symbolic and cultural. This is why we worked from critical theory as the main methodological part for the development of design projects. The results are scientific posters, visual communication posters and design products such as installations, architecture, urban planning and technological devices (prototypes and models).

The intention is to be able to present these academic results in the DW. These works will also be exhibited at La Anáhuac México and at CETYS-Tijuana.
