Design for social change

Save favourite 15 May May 2019

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In order to achieve this, we need to find new forms of production, consumption and recycling. Here, design makes a difference.

This year's task is to draw attention to circular design by creating a recycling project. The design methodology as a method and tool examines what is thrown away and why. In the project, various antique shops, flea markets and landfills are visited with the purpose of studying design styles and collecting materials for a circular design project to manifest sustainable societies through design thinking.

Aim: To develop a sustainable approach to design and to explore sustainable ways to communicate and inform about global challenges through design.
