Can 1 day of design make a difference?

Can you change the world in a day? At 5K we decided we wanted to find out.

We will review the morning news together on the BBC website once a week for 5 weeks, for inspiration. Each week the team will choose one story that really speaks to us — which we believe good Design could make a significant difference to. It might be a tool to empower vulnerable people, it might be a piece of functionality added to an existing service, or organisation to open up a new opportunity, or look at the world in a different way.

Then we will hit it with everything we can for 8 hours and post our results at the end of the day. It is about trying to forget the complexities, all the edge cases — focusing on just a small part of the idea that is unrestricted and gets people thinking.

Look out for #1dayofdesign on Twitter to see how we get on - you can find today’s post here.
