Design 4 Inclusion

Understanding fragilty, designing for inclusion, and growing the value of responsible enterprise

ON DEMAND COURSE FOR BUSINESS

Italian

Course

The Higher Education Course aims to explore the themes of inclusion in the aspects addressed to the social, entrepreneurial, economic and political dimension, as influential for the design of new products, environments and services and for the improvement of welfare.
In a logic “from the spoon to the city”, we want to explore the change in the regulatory framework, methodological, design, trying to trace the directions to come of a social sensitivity in strong growth and relevance, in terms of administrative and business culture.

It is about learning to relate to the fragile categories of society, assessing their needs and characteristics, trying to develop relational and participatory models that improve their social and psychological conditions, both by private individuals and public institutions.
