Service Design with the Planet in Mind is the feature theme of the upcoming issue of Touchpoint - The Journal of Service Design. We are looking to publish articles that explore question such as how are service designers embedding sustainability concerns into their decision-making? How are we supporting the so-called circular economy? And what can we learn from the natural sciences and from nature in order to improve our own activities?

Besides handing in articles related to this issue’s feature, you are also invited to hand in content for the other regular sections of Touchpoint, such as the ´Cross-Discipline´, ´Tools & Methods´ and ´Education & Research´ sections.
