It comprises 17 goals that serve as a call for action to government bodies around the world. By taking action on each goal, we are helping to reshape the future.

These goals are Good Design Award Philippines’ guide in mapping the malasakit aspect of every design. Designs that address at least one of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals clearly show sincere intent in helping improve people’s way of living, while also taking care of the world we live in.

SUSTAINABILITY, COMMUNITY, AND THE FILIPINO IDENTITY

HOLISTIC COALITION OF THE WILLING (HoliCOW)

The Holistic Coalition of the Willing (HoliCOW) is an initiative by our kababayans in the Visayas region that fosters sustainability, community, but most especially, the Filipino identity.

They are a group of furniture designers and manufacturers in the Visayas who collaborate with communities to develop, produce, and market sustainable, fair trade products that responsibly tap a community’s skills and resources, and that supplement their livelihood.

The coalition’s core value is to craft from resources found within proximity: from objects to traditions passed down from one generation to another. By rallying the morale of our local designers and innovating the design industry’s processes, HoliCOW is a key player in keeping the country’s design scene thriving.
