Also, TCDC has built a knowledge management network through 14 mini TCDCs nationwide and opened TCDC Chiang Mai in 2013 as a center for exchanging creative ideas and readying regional entrepreneurs to keep up with ever-changing global demand.
TCDC constantly develops ways to manage knowledge as well as to share and connect creativity with business practices, making it possible that imagination can change your life.
Design for Flood is an initiative by the TCDC. Its goal is to provide solutions to improve the quality of life of flood victims, and respond to the needs of regional service users.
The project aims to bring design thinking into use, while researching problems and solutions to flooding, which will be frequent and more damaging due to impact of climate change. The purpose of this process is to answer to the real needs of product and service users regionally.
