In the course sustainability is addressed in the real world, challenging to improve and/or build a sustainable system. Through a disruptive systems thinking and design methodology, students explore, discover, interpret, limit and propose strategic interventions for wicked problems. The proposed methodology looks to intervene with disruptive solutions to tackle the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. It’s structured in two parts, starting with an introduction to sustainability theory with emphasis on videos, readings and virtual classroom discussions. Through systems, regenerative cultures and disruptive thinking, sustainability is visualized through a macro lens in order to reach micro solutions.The second part will apply a proof of concept using systemic and holistic tools reflecting ethical values of a contemporary sustainable designer. The project seeks to foster disruptive and speculative solutions for complex, ambiguous and wicked problems that we live in the XXI Century.
