Design Like you Give A Damn [2] is the indispensable handbook for anyone committed to building a better a more sustainable future. With the rise in social demand for recycling programs and sustainable living this second title in the Design Like you Give A Damn repertoire, documenting more than 1 00 new projects from around the world tunes into this fever pitch of change. This volume is packed with practical and ingenious design solutions that address the need for basic shelter, housing, education, health care, clean water and renewable energy.

One-on-one interviews and provocative case studies demonstrate how innovative design is reimagining community and uplifting lives. From swing sets in refugee shelters, a co-ed skate-park in war-torn Afghanistan, to building material innovations such as smog-eating concrete to innovative public policy that is repainting Brazils' urban slums, Design Like you Give A Damn [2] serves as a how-to guide for anyone seeking to build change from the ground up.
