Product & System Design for Social Good


At its very center, design aims to solve problems. First, design looked to solve problems of a technical nature, before the discipline became a commercial investment. Design can also be used to tackle social issues, and this is just what this month-long course focuses on. 


This program is split in two parts:


1. The Theoretical that will give participants detailed information about how a standard design process works, master the techniques they wish to make use of; 


2. The Practical, during which participants will work as small teams on a social challenge of their choosing. 


By the end of the program, people who had no previous design experience have a strong understanding about what design is, what it can be, and a good grasp of the skills required to lead a project to completion. You will learn basic research and design methodology; knowledge about materials, production techniques and ecodesign, methods of integrating a project within a complex system; prototype-making basics, and project communication and funding.
