Design When Everybody Designs

Ezio Manzini is a pioneer in the field of design toward sustainable futures and author of Design when Everybody Designs (MIT Press, 2015), which builds on the experiences of the DESIS Network (DESIS: design for social innovation towards sustainability) drawing a picture of what design experts can do to amplify and support the on-going flow of radical, bottom-up social innovation and a more resourceful social economy. He describes emerging forms of collaboration between design professionals and others, where new solutions are suggested and new meanings created. A new paradigm and practices emerge based on a more engaged, innovative and sustainable way of being in the world.
