About the Association of Collaborative Design
The Association of Collaborative Design (ACD) brings together a network of individuals, professionals and organisations that endorse the collaborative process of creating and managing environments with and for people and nature.
This process promotes change to the built environment from the street to neighbourhood to the regional scale and aims to meet peoples needs through participatory and democratic decision-making at all levels.
The ACD was founded in 2020 and is a Community Interest Company (CIC)
ChampioningCommunities will benefit from the company promoting the importance and value of collaborative design in urban development to local government and central government authorities, as well as to developers and house builders. At present, meaningful community-led design is not mainstream in urban development.
