About


The New Design Congress is a research organisation that develops a detailed and nuanced understanding of technology’s role as a social, political and environmental accelerant. We advocate for deeper understanding of digital politics beyond the limitations of ‘human-centred Design’, evaluating and deploying new, inclusive philosophies to technology design.

In collaboration with a diverse set of voices and organisations, we develop and publish new perspectives to understand the role of systems and interfaces and their social-political and ecological components. We believe this to be a form of “systems literacy,” stepping back from individual issues to gain a more complete perspective of the cascading relationships of seemingly unconnected components of modern societies. 

Founded in January 2020, the New Design Congress is a fiscally sponsored project of Simply Secure, a US 501(c)3 nonprofit.
