Deadline for Abstracts extended until July 31 2020

Deadline for Abstract Submission to our conference «Design as Common Good 2021» has been extended to 31 July 2020. Looking forward to receiving your papers.

In light of social, economic, technological and environmental challenges, design researchers, practitioners as well as communities constantly critically address and question the contribution of design to the common good. The Common Good as proposed by Hussein Waheed in the 2018 Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (Zalta et al., 2018) “benefits society as a whole – in contrast to the private good of individuals and sections of society.” Design as a discipline has long been positioned from the context of developing and catering to the private good, focusing on individual and smaller sections of society - largely leaving its contributions to the common good under explored.
