Description

Learn how to expand your human-centred design to be more sustainable, regenerative, and inclusive.

You’ll redesign a product of your choice to do less harm and more good with circular and inclusive design, non-human personas, and Sustainable Development Goals.

6 interactive design sessions to expand your design powers

Week 1—Map your ecosystem
After learning the scope, principles, and tools of life-centred design, you’ll dive straight into active learning by zooming out from your design subject to map the greater ecosystem it belongs to and see the people, animals, and planet it impacts.

Week 2—Do Less Harm
Learn circular, sustainable, and inclusive design strategies to optimise your design subject’s durability and usability to reduce what it takes and who it might exclude.

Week 3—Give Nature A Voice
Create personas for the vulnerable people, animals, and environments your subject impacts, including creating multi-media versions for engaging and influencing shareholders.

Week 4—Do More Good
Use your non-human and non-user personas to innovate your subject’s product and business to shift from just taking from the planet to caretaking that which it takes from.

Week 5—Align with world
Connect your design subject to global goals and innovate ways to set metrics.

Week 6—Present your life-centred design project
Presentation night! After compiling your innovations into a cohesive life-centred redesign, you’ll share your presentation with the group before reflecting on your learnings together on how to take them further into the world.

Who is this for?
