Insights from the Design for Planet Fellowship -165


Bernard Hay

In December 2021, the Design Council launched the Design for Planet Fellowship: a proto-type programme that convened eight designers working across disciplines to develop new practices around regenerative design. The programme began as an opportunity to explore the important role designers can play as knowledge-weavers within systemic change: identifying opportunities for cross-sector collaboration, knowledge transfer and facilitating those relationships (Drew and Hunter, 2021). It also sought to investigate a series of key issues within regenerative design, from design’s entanglement with language to mapping the power relations that shape practice. This presentation shares key insights from the fellowship and reflections on how to create spaces for collective enquiry into design systems.

Pre-proceedings drafts are available for RSD11 participants to review. The corresponding paper number is at the end of the title. The papers have been peer-reviewed, and the authors have made revisions. Following RSD11, authors will have a final period to revise their work from the feedback received at RSD before the proceedings are formally published.
