Le linee guida del Global Agenda Council on Design

Tra gli ultimi post sul blog di Tim Browndesignthinking, si riporta l’incontro avuto con 70 “eminent designers and design thinkers” all’evento del World Economic Forum per la WEF Global Agenda Councils a Dubai. Obiettivo della Global Agenda Council on Design: studiare come migliorare le istituzioni internazionali e definire le linee-guida per pianificare gli interventi. Al di la del fine fantascientifico, di certo interesse sono le codifiche che suggeriscono e che qui riportiamo:

“Design is an agent of change that enables us to understand complex changes and problems, and to turn them into something useful. Tackling today’s global challenges will require radical thinking, creative solutions and collaborative action. Here is a set of principles identified by the Global Agenda Council on Design that could help your Council to develop ideas and strategies to address the complex problems facing us all”.

Transparent: Complex problems require simple, clear and honest solutions.

Inspiring: Successful solutions will move people by satisfying their needs
giving meaning to their lives, and raising their hopes and expectations.

Transformational: Exceptional problems demand exceptional solutions that
may be radical and even disruptive.

Participatory: Effective solutions will be collaborative, inclusive and developed with the people who will use them.

Contextual: No solution should be developed or delivered in isolation but
should instead recognize the social, physical and information systems it is part of.

Sustainable: Every solution needs to be robust, responsible and designed
with regard to its long-term impact on the environment and society.

What is missing? What would you change?
