This award is given to designers or organizations whose projects have contributed
to a sustainable daily life that aims for a harmonious relationship between people,
society and the environment.

In 2010, Seoul was designated a City of Design
by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network,
a program initiated to support the United
Nations Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs).
This designation marked the beginning of
Seoul's journey towards a sustainable future
through collaborative design
efforts among cities.

With the aspiration of advancing global sustainability through shared learning, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) in 2018 invited 20 cities worldwide to facilitate the exchange success stories. This effort led to the establishment of the ‘Seoul Design Award for Sustainable Daily Life’ in 2019. The award acknowledges designs promoting sustainable daily life that aim for harmony between people, society and the environment.

The Seoul Design Award is a non-profit honor that has attracted entries from 62 countries. It is esteemed by international experts as a prestigious platform that highlights the impact of socially transformative designs and celebrates designers committed to their social responsibilities.

We cordially invite designers who are actively shaping a brighter future in our ever-evolving world to partake in the ‘Seoul Design Award 2024 for Sustainable Daily Life’.
