Designing for Socio-Ecological Transformation

Our built and unbuilt environment is central to our living. These are the spaces where we can experience nature and interact with it on a day-to-day basis. Yet, the way they are designed and created, has high social, ecological and economic costs.

As active users of our built and unbuilt environment, we are expected to accept this as inevitable, even though there is no dearth of alternative design solutions, technical knowledge and expertise. What is lacking is a platform where stakeholders can collaborate to provide “Responsible Building” solutions at scale, by tapping into the growing public sensitivity on the importance of environmental stewardship.

To kick-start this socio-ecological transformation process, a vibrant group of established designers, architects, planners, social entrepreneurs came together and got exposed to a process that enables people to design initiatives that simultaneously in time solves problems, shifts systems and creates new patterns. The tools used in the training are meant to bring about a paradigm shift in the way the designers look at themselves; at complex systems within which they operate; and at ways of designing interventions for getting sustainable results.

The training took place on 10th and 11th June 2018, at TARA complex in New Delhi.
