DNEM ensures design is leveraged to its full potential to minimise the impacts of adverse events. DNEM provides transdisciplinary expertise on the use of design before, during and after emergencies.
DNEM is an international think tank that consists of experts from five of the world’s seven continents. We specialise in diverse fields such as design, research, science, emergency planning, and policy. By encouraging quality research, collaborations and applications of design and design thinking in the specialised area of emergency planning DNEM will build a stronger body of universal knowledge, credibility, and design presence in disaster risk management. We work with a wide range of stakeholders across the globe, from the public to governments, knowledge institutes and industry.
To ensure design thinking and evidence-based design principles are leveraged
to their full potential before, during and after emergencies to minimise the impacts of adverse events.
