We are driven to expand the reach of our social impact to a global audience.

More placemakers.

More neighbourhoods.

More impact around the globe.


"Design has enormous leverage in shaping the world. By shaping designers, and the way they think, CoDesign Studio can help shape a better world." - Founder Lucinda Hartley in March 2011.

Design training and process innovation have been core for us since the very beginning. Our trainings and talks have been delivered in Australia, Asia Pacific, and the USA, from masterclasses through to mentored programs.

Today, we deliver training online to continue to grow the impact of design thinking and collaborative approaches to build better, healthier, and more sustainable environments around the world.

Join us in our next free session or find out more about our structured 6-week online programs.

Who attends the webinar series?

Signing in from around the world, we provide handouts and insights to:

  • Property developers under pressure to deliver housing and precincts already pre-set on a path of community maturation;
  • Government workers feeling the squeeze between department KPI's and community needs, while their hands are tied with excessive siloing;
  • Active citizens ready to step-up and deliver activities and projects for greater impact; and,
  • Architects and built environment professionals seeking authenticity because they understand there is more to place identity than branding.

These are a few examples of the professionals, experts, and grassroots players whom we have been able to help pro-bono this year through the development of our ongoing free and paid webinar series.

What have previous ticket-holders had to say?
