HOME 2024 is a binational initiative seeking a World Design Capital (WDC) designation for San Diego-Tijuana for 2024 and gaining recognition for the cross-border region as a design-driven, innovation economy. Centered on the theme of HOME, a community-led team aims to mobilize human-centered design as a way to transform the region and improve quality of life.
This multi-year effort is led by a team of designers, innovators, and civic leaders on both sides of the US-Mexico border. The initiative is spearheaded by the Design Forward Alliance, UC San Diego Design Lab, the Burnham Center for Community Advancement and with full support of both governments, including the cities of San Diego and Tijuana. Countless organizations, businesses, and volunteers on both sides of the border have been instrumental in the collaborative effort.
