Why design policy?

One of the main goals of BCD is to ensure that design is included and considered in government strategy and its different policies, at local, regional, national and European level. BCD is also focused on gathering data to demonstrate the strategic value and economic impact of design.

BCD is an active member of BEDA, The Bureau of European Design Associations. BEDA exists to ensure permanent liaison between its members and the authorities of the European Union in order to communicate and promote the value of design and innovation to the European economy.
