Bas van den Berg explores co-design practices for systemic transitions and introduces a preliminary version of a Systemic Co-Design (SCD-) framework, a multi-year transdisciplinary project dedicated to developing a framework for an SCD-framework. This session shares the first learnings about the SCD-framework and seeks to identify potential opportunities for future SCD work and possible directions for further research. In this session, Bas van den Berg seeks to explore further the opportunities and tensions of co-design practices for systemic transitions.
The framework aims to provide an integral way of navigating complex societal challenges towards more regenerative futures and is currently being iteratively developed by the Dutch Expertise Network Systemic Co-design (ESC). This network comprises five universities of applied sciences and its societal partners and focuses on transitions towards 1) a responsible digital society, 2) a healthy citizenry, 3) a sustainable future, and 4) a regenerative educational system.
The results of a collective year-long knowledge co-creation process are set out in detail in the associated paper (#92), and the framework is then used to make sense of a case of educational system change.
