Social Innovation

Design for social innovation is an emerging design research field. In the last 10 years design practitioners and researchers have started to explore what role design could have in social change processes that contributes to social innovation and sustainability. During 10 weeks we explore the role of interaction designers in social innovation by working in teams on real-world cases. We touch upon concepts such as creative communities, collaborative services, collaborative consumption, sustainability (ecological, social and economical), resilience, “new economics”, commons, designing networks (collaborative innovation), policy and governance.
