Creative Futures - Design for Transformation and Change

At the Design for Transformation and Change research network, we share an understanding that societies, corporations and lifestyles need to change towards a socially and ecologically sustainable life for future generations. Design’s role as a driver for change is already recognized in corporate culture and decision-making, but there is a lack of knowledge about its true capabilities. In this network, we combine expertise and methodologies in design management, leadership and design history, to provide in-depth knowledge of design and innovation as change-makers. 

At the core of the Design for Transformation and Change research network is a desire to generate actionable guidance for using design capabilities in any organization. We see design as a process, which is not only essential for the success of products, but also for creating concepts, strategies, visions and values.
