Latitudes is the first global educational network that puts design at the heart of how we tackle global climate change. Using crowd-sourcing methodology the latitudes network aims to connect people in different climatic regions, sharing ideas in order to innovate in the field of environmental design. The network is led by a ‘design-led thinking’ approach that includes social dimensions and policy options for addressing climate change and built environment solutions. It is supported by innovative tools and software that allow the creation of a ‘global classroom’ with real-time interactions and screen mirroring. The expanding network of partner universities are based in different latitudes around the world, including Rovaniemi, Tromsø, London, Sao Paolo, Kuala Lumpur, Bologna, Istanbul, Ankara, Delhi, Chennai, and most recently the Maldives.
