DISTRIBUTED DESIGN BOOK 2023 – Driving Design
Note for Contributors
Driving Design is the fifth in a series of eight publications developed within the Distributed Design Platform, funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
The 2023 edition addresses the drivers of design that have emerged over the past years and those that will be key in designing for the near future. In this edition, we reflect on how design is a form of activism that can enable us to tackle pressing challenges and conflicts.
