In the workshop the participants will be exposed to provocative questions and activities to:
Let their cultural-self emerge and become aware of how their social constructs can influence the design process and outcome
Contextualize their project in the physical and social environment it lives in: mapping a larger array of stakeholders including ecosystem, local communities, other organizations (partners, suppliers, distributors and developers...) etc.
Uncover the dynamics at play in the project's environment such as power relations, values, norms and beliefs that affect how people think and behave, including how they might respond to these dynamics (strategies and mechanisms for influencing, lobbying etc.)
Come together to discuss the output of their thinking and to start the brainstorm on ethical and responsible guiding principles to foster sustainable design interventions
