This paper reviews the approach of Design School Kolding (hereafter “the School”), a third-level design school in Denmark towards design for the common good. The expansion of the concept of design to include social goods and sustainability (protecting people and the planet) shows a profound shift in the focus of design teaching and design education. It follows from an earlier and perhaps not fully mature shift from “structure- and process-based to competency-based edu-cation and measurement of outcomes” (Carracio et al. 2002), the “disappearance of things” (Findelli, 2000) and “in response to new developments, new tools, new situations, and new technologies” (Friedman, 2019).
