Bioinclusive Collaborative and Participatory Design: A Conceptual Framework and a Research Agenda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Addressing the current unsustainability of socio-ecological-technological systems is urgently required. Unsustainability has been associated with anthropocentric cultures of human societies that focus on their own needs while ignoring and belittling the needs of other species and natural systems. Design, including collaborative and participatory design (C&PD), is one of the multiple ways through which humans build solutions to satisfy own needs and wants in an anthropocentric manner. Through an integrative literature review on C&PD and bioinclusive ethic, one of the non-anthropocentric frameworks in environmental ethics, this paper develops a conceptual framework for a bioinclusive C&PD rooted in a non-anthropocentric values base. It outlines twelve key principles for bioinclusive C&PD and proposes six avenues for further research.
