Digital Society School

Shape our future

Why wait until the tech that shapes our future is a given? Instead, let’s work on ideas to successfully integrate digital technology in our lives and society today.

To this end, we have founded the Digital Society School. Through the school, we seek to research the impact of technology on society, develop the skills necessary to guide the transformation and pass on this knowledge and these skills to a new generation of professionals. They are ready to begin work on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. They will be the architects of transformation, across the world as well as in Amsterdam.

Work with us across disciplines, generations and backgrounds

We are a diverse group of designers, developers and researchers that shape tomorrow’s society through digital technology, using human-centered design approaches. We are explicitly open, placing our findings at the world’s disposal. We believe that our digitally fuelled future can -and should- be inclusive, intelligent and involve us all. We invite students and professionals from creative industries to join us on our mission.

Intern at DSS

An internship at Digital Society School will open up a world of opportunities. You’ll be part of a vibrant interdisciplinary group during a semester and have unique access to a network of experts in the field.

Institutional partners

Our partners understand that positive impact on society goes hand in hand with value creation for their own organisation. They are ready for digital, integral solutions for ‘people, planet and profit’, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sure, they might not know how to get there yet, but that is exactly what we’ll work on together.
