Part art, part activism, all thought-provoking and immersive, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Toronto office hosted a Nature Deficit Disorder “Clinic” for the Nuit Blanche festival in September.

Now the installation has won a 2018 So(cial) Good Design Award from the Association of Registered Graphic Designers – a non-profit, professional association representing 3,800 design practitioners.

Jennifer McDougall, a Laurier alumna, whose title for the project was “design researcher and futurist,” was one of the four designers behind the project, with partners Bergur Ebbi, Nourhan Hegazy and Prateeksha Singh.

The permanent installation website is at:  A video about the installation is also available.
