Social Design Institute: Researching For Future Sustainability

The Social Design  Institue is a new researching group within the University of The Arts London. Social design and design for social innovation are concerned with long-term futures for places, communities and organisations. Design for sustainability requires understanding the social issues around resource use, waste, climate change and responses to it, and the politics and ethics of designing for sustainable futures.


UAL’s new Social Design Institute is a ‘virtual institute’ dedicated to connecting colleges, staff, students, PhD students and specialist research centres and hubs to achieve its mission to bring research insights to how designers, non-designers and organisations do designing, resulting in positive social design and environmental outcomes.
