About this event

Responsible Design reframes the social and ecological consequences, boundaries and agencies of design in ways that allow designers to address complex eco-social problems. This expansive approach asks learners to consider the unintended social and environmental consequences of what designers propose and do. Despite its potential, Responsible Design education faces significant challenges in shifting institutional priorities in Design Schools. The Responsible Design Research Group (RDRG) at Loughborough University has established six principles which we attempt to embed in our research, teaching and practice. Ensuring such principles are foundational in teaching, rather than subsidiary or optional is the focus of this workshop. The half-day workshop will include a participatory mapping session and will be part of a larger research project.
