Design for the New World: From Human Design to Planet
Design introduces a new paradigm in design and design
thinking, shifting our approach from a human-centred
perspective to a planet-centred perspective, in which design
is always guided by the ambition to create a balanced coexistence
between humans and the other species that make up
the global ecosystem.
This book connects traditional design thinking with ongoing
debates about the Anthropocene and innovative
perspectives from systems thinking, systemic leadership,
and indigenous practices. Intervening in current discussions
within design research about the role design can
play in the sustainable transition, it offers new methods and
mindsets to handle the scale and complexity of the climate
and environmental crisis, and practical tools to turn theoretical
reflections into transformative practice.
