Design for Sustainability (DFS)

  • Design is understood as purposeful attempts to change the existing practices into something more preferable
  • Design is about forming ‘objects’ that intervenes in status quo by ‘setting people and things in motion’, lay-people, professionals etc..
  • Design is also about non-linearity and emergence as the responses and effects of intervention are unpredictable for both social and material stakeholders
  • There is wide recognition amongst practitioners and academics that design can foster both creativity, innovation and change  - economists, engineers, doctors, the Bible and the Pope etc…
