ECO Solidarity is an initiative and a movement which addresses the urgency for a more human-centered design in response to humanitarian and public health crises, focusing on ecology, climate change, the public health and well-being in public spaces, and the role of the economy, the key objectives of Green New Deal, through interior and product design, and spatial planning.

ECO Solidarity was initiated by the Polish Cultural Institute New York and Studio Rygalik, in collaboration with WantedDesign Manhattan, and in partnership with the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) organizations: Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Delegation of the Government of Flanders to the USA, Wallonie-Bruxelles International New York, Czech Center New York, Goethe-Institut New York, Arts Council Malta in New York, and Romanian Cultural Institute New York.
