Dundee became the UK’s only UNESCO City of Design in December 2014, joining UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network of global design cities, including Seoul, Kobe, Montréal, Shenzhen, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Helsinki, Bilbao and more. The designation is a prestigious award that recognises the huge contribution the city has made to design worldwide. Like other cities we have our challenges, but the City of Design status is something which Dundee can build on to do even greater things.
