An increasingly interconnected world presents opportunities and incentives to learn, explore, collaborate and innovate.

H​ow do we nurture conditions in which a diffuse creativity can flourish and evolve through collaborative organisations and, in so doing, realise meaningful steps towards a more resilient and sustainable society?

Ezio Manzini, author of Design when Everybody Designs (MIT Press, 2015), builds on the experiences of the DESIS Network (DESIS: design for social innovation towards sustainability) drawing a picture of what design experts can do to amplify and support the on-going flow of radical, bottom-up social innovation and a more resourceful social economy. He describes emerging forms of collaboration between design professionals and others, where new solutions are suggested and new meanings created. A new paradigm and practices emerge based on a more engaged, innovative and sustainable way of being in the world.
