Design for Social Impact


Can we design social impact? The challenge of this Impact Dive is to propose a positive answer to that question. But how? Along this journey participants will dive into a formative experience aimed at providing the main useful tools to generate social impact. Starting from the modalities through which understand the context of one’s own action – also by a double mapping of context/stakeholders and challenges/opportunities – the faculty will guide towards the design for change: from the construction of a co-vision of the world and the future to the participatory design tools.
