World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana Campus Convening on Dec 9th

Submit Your Project and Participate in the Design to Action Convening on Dec 9th

Contribute to the World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana 2024 Legacy Program

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to submit your project and join our first World Design Capital San Diego Tijuana 2024 Campus Convening on December 9, 2022, held at the UCSD Design Lab in the Design and Innovation building between 2.00-5.00pm.

The Design Lab at UC San Diego is a founding partner of World Design Capital 2024 program and is leading the Legacy Program, which involves the curation of legacy projects. As part of WDC 2024 legacy programming strategy, we intend to identify, assess, select, and resource multinational legacy programs ensuring that the designation catalyzes and accelerates meaningful design transformation in our transborder, multinational region.

During the bid and site visit phases, some preliminary community outreach and engagement was conducted, which identified potential initiatives/programs. However, it is imperative during this new phase of implementation that potential, current, and new research-action projects are identified within the regional network, to include colleagues in San Diego and Tijuana in order to leverage the skills and talents at our academic institutions. 

The above will be known as the Design 2 Action Initiative.

Via this form, we are providing an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students within our region to share summary details about their research and community engaged projects so that we can:

  • Connect: Understand the landscape of what work has already been done, what is on the horizon, and how to create synergies between stakeholders;
  • Catalyze: Create engagement and accelerate action from connecting a network of researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers; and 
  • Communicate: Share progress and solicit feedback to ensure meaningful progression and to scale impact.

What do we need from you?

Report: Military Remains Economic Bright Spot In San Diego

Report: Military remains economic bright spot in San Diego

Design Lab member Michael Meyer discusses San Diego's defense economy during Covid with ABC 10 News San Diego.

The coronavirus pandemic appears to have been no match for San Diego's defense economy, which a new report says keeps on growing.

The San Diego Military Advisory Council study says from the fiscal year 2020 to 2021, direct defense spending was $35.3 billion dollars, a 5.3 percent annual gain. Jobs grew 2 percent to nearly 349,112. In all, it made for a $55.2 billion dollar gross regional product.

"That means continued stability and economic prosperity for San Diego, buffered by, or provided by the military economy presence," said Michael Meyer, a professor at UC San Diego's Rady School of Management, which researched the report.

The study points out that military spending impacts more than the people employed by the federal government or serving on base or active duty. Instead, there's a multiplier effect in San Diego, with nearly 190,000 San Diegans employed by private companies contracting with the defense department -- such as in programming or shipbuilding.

"Retraining for electronics, computers, aviation, the engineering fields, the technical financial fields. That's all valuable and an effective way of getting into the military economy," Meyer said.
