Comment

Works That Work magazine travelled to the Himalayas to document examples of how Bhutan became an inspiration for both developing and developed countries.

Join us for the launch of the printed magazine presenting the results of the 18 months long research. Works That Work looks at social impact of design and spoke to the politicians setting the future direction of the country, entrepreneurs building businesses in a land where happiness is prioritised over material goods, postage stamp designers whose work helps to raise funds for further economic development, filmmakers who tour remote parts of the country to show their movies and engage with their audiences, and artists taking on a wider social responsibility by helping indebted farmers in the countryside.
