وهو مبادرة لبناء جسور بين هولندا والعالم العربي في مجال التصميم من اجل التأثير الاجتماعي
The main goal of the NEAR-project is to build a sustainable relationship between Dutch design and design disciplines in the Arab world. Our focus is on bringing Dutch design to the Arab world. We would summarize our goals as follows:
Sharing knowledge & experience about design to impact
Sharing perspectives on the position and added value of design for the cultures we live in
Creating a network of like-minded social designers.
Initiating multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural projects together
Building bridges to learn from each other!
