DESIS Network aims at using design thinking and design knowledge to co-create, with local, regional and global partners, socially relevant scenarios, solutions and communication programs.
SCALING-UP SOCIAL INNOVATION
DESIS Network main aim is to use design thinking and design knowledge to trigger, enable and scale-up social innovation. That is:
CLARIFYING THE DESIGN POTENTIAL
DESIS Network’s second aim is to clarify the design for social innovation potential both inside and outside the design community. That is:
PROMOTING AN OPEN DESIGN PROGRAM
DESIS Network’s most ambitious aim is to promote a broad and flexible design program. A design program where several local, regional and global projects may converge, reinforce each other and generate innovative scenarios and solutions. Our desire is to produce knowledge with the contribution of different partners (open processes) and that can be used by all stakeholders (open results).
In short the DESIS Network’s higher ambition is to generate an Open Design Program able to give different projects visibility, to facilitate their alignments, collaborations and synergies and, on these bases, to develop visions and proposals adequate to the great challenges of contemporary society.
