DESIGN 2020 Online Workshop on Design for Global Sustainable Development
26 October 2020, 14:30 - 16:00 Central European Time
This workshop was a sequel to the first workshop held at ICED2019 at Delft. We continue the effort to build a network of design researchers, educators, and practitioners based in African countries with particular emphasis on design for sustainable development, and to link them with colleagues in the worldwide design community.
The workshop focused on the intersection of four research themes generated in the ICED 2019 Delft workshop and four application domains.
The workshop’s objectives were (i) to get deeper insights to the specific needs in an African context; (ii) to develop an actionable plan for research, education, and practice, with respect to the specific needs; (iii) to support the building of teams that can undertake follow-up actions at the intersections in the above matrix
A related objective is to develop specific ways that our African colleagues can participate in the Design Society and its various activities and meetings. Notably, the Design Society and its members have a strong commitment to sustainable design but Society membership from African countries is very limited. The Society has set a goal to serve as a community builder (per SDG 17) leveraging a number of existing relationships between its members and colleagues in African countries, as well as cultivating new ones with academic, government, and other organizations. The workshop will explore specific ways to achieve this goal.
The specific objectives for outcomes are:
- Initiate planning for ICED 2021 Workshop;
- Co-authoring agreements on papers for ICED 2021 and the Design Science Journal Thematic Collection on Design for Global Sustainable Development
- Joint research projects;
- Joint education projects, including instructional work.
