Systemic Design Symposium Survey
Please consider answering this very brief survey and sharing your thoughts about RSD.
RSD12 Concept—October 9–20, 2023
Save the date. RSD12 is envisioned as a two-week programme, excluding weekends. The Georgetown proposal is a multi-event symposia concept, connecting systemic design hubs around the world in a sequence of in-person, online, and hybrid sessions. Hub symposia are augmented by a four-hour online program dedicated to full papers and emergent programming.

Systemic Design Association’s changes in 2022
I want to take this opportunity to make a special wish for the new year that we continue to connect people with design and build a future of peace and friendship. The future is now, and we are responsible for designing a better world.
Reflections on possibilities for systemic design
This year’s RSD contributions were dedicated to exploring possibilities for systemic design. A call went out to question systemic design’s emerging shape, and the growing, remarkably interdisciplinary systemic design community responded.
It’s time to finalise RSD11 proceedings
After a brief hiatus, it’s time to finalise RSD11 proceedings. As an RSD editor, I feel incredibly grateful to be able to revisit and review this work.
Systemic Design Publication Update: Contexts available January 2023
We’ve had a huge learning year and good results for the systemic design publication. Volume 1 will feature papers from authors Harold Nelson, Elena Porqueddu, Dulmini Perera and Tony Fry.
In memoriam: Klaus Krippendorff

In memoriam: Tom Snow
“… ecological design also includes the careful meshing of human purposes with the larger patterns and flows of the natural world”
