We collect Design Signals that script a more inclusive, equal, peaceful, safer and healthier future
The global and local challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, social justice require a paradigm shift: from sustainable design to design for sustainability.
This interdisciplinary project-based course aims to explore and practice some of the fundamental tools to bridge design and system thinking for sustainability. It takes the participants through practical concepts, tools and processes to propose design interventions that aim to improve the co-existence of humans, preserve biodiversity, and life-supporting systems. It integrates environmental, economic, social and cultural dimensions. The course explores interventions at different levels (material, product, product-service system, social innovation, and system transformation).
