About this Unit
From Spring 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301293 - Designing for Circular Economy (Advanced).     This unit builds students' capacity for systems thinking in the context of designing new products and services. Students will explore contested and emerging sustainability issues, gather evidence of opportunities for change, and then scope out plans for implementing new product service systems. Students will conduct this by researching and modelling some of the current challenges facing socio-ethical, economic and environmental domains. Designers must now go beyond current uses of technology to visualise and plan scenarios of how the world could be. This entails engaging with complex ecological equilibria, and developing system solutions that are acceptable socially and attractive culturally.
