When looking at society, we see transformative change happening as governments, businesses and citizens all try to find their own ways to address the challenges of sustainability. We postulate that these challenges require new radical design approaches and interventions that can unleash the capacity to achieve desired futures, rather than going round in circles and muddling through in our current systems and leaving the underlying challenges untouched. In this conversation, we’ve explored how design can evoke sustainable and just transitions and transformations, with experts working in these fields.
