DESIGN2022 Online Workshop on Exploring Modalities of Mutual Learning for Global Sustainable Development

23rd May 2022, 13:15-16:30 (Central European Time)


The proposed workshop builds on a particular finding of previous workshops at ICED 2019, DESIGN 2020, and ICED 2021: the need for mutual learning activities on design for sustainable development across countries and regions. As an example, previous workshop discussions led to the launch of Baraza's, community-driven series of regular events where members of the design community take the leading role  to  plan out and hold a baraza (Swahili word for a public meeting place) in their own style. Three Baraza's have been hosted since November 2021 with reports being made available. Other modalities of mutual learning have been discussed including workshops, short courses, on-site local events, knowledge repositories, and leveraging multi-society activities where the Design Society is a partner. The emphasis is on two-way learning across all participants in such events.
