Designing Smart for Sustainable and Resilient Communities
The Role of Participatory Design in Addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals
PDC 25 August, 2022
PDC Places, Brisbane, Australia
This workshop reflects on the role of participatory design and its community of facilitators and participants in addressing sustainable development in cities, regional centres and rural communities. The workshop will bring together academics, researchers and practitioners to share their experiences, expertise and visions for:
- evolving participatory design approaches to move beyond the individual;
- reinvigorating a stronger relationship between communities and institutions across different scales in order to re-politicise participatory design practices, projects and methods; and
- making a concerted effort of contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are specifically interested in ways of ‘designing smart’ by engaging and working with communities to address complex challenges, such as social inequality, economic disparity and environmental degradation to build more sustainable, resilient and socially ‘just’ communities.
The workshop will be run in conjunction with the Brisbane, Australia PDC Places event as a full day face-to-face workshop.
