Pranay Arun Kumar and Peter Jones

The synthesis map presented here has been developed from the designed outcomes of a workshop on systemic design for healthcare sustainability hosted by Jones and Arun Kumar (2021) at RSD10. The map is the second phase of an ongoing long-term project envisioned as a developmental design approach to engage with complex socio-technical problems of healthcare sustainability. The concept of developmental design builds on M. Q. Patton’s models of evaluation, emphasising design as a method of evaluation which is dynamic, introspective and reflective, and hence relevant to temporal systemic problems such as climate change and human health. The developmental design agenda has been elaborated as a presentation at RSD11 (Arun Kumar and Jones, 2022).
