ED-Festival pre-conference workshop – Activating Positive Social Change with Disruptive Design by Dr Leyla Acaroglu
Workshop led by Dr Leyla Acaroglu
Using a robust scientific approach to understanding the complex systems that impact society, the Disruptive Design Method leverages systems, sustainability, and design to understand, explore, and intervene in existing systems and to activate change globally.
The workshop provides the foundation for using the Disruptive Design Method - a holistic approach to complex problem solving that combines sociological inquiry methods with systems and design thinking approaches. The Disruptive Design Method helps you to develop systems interventions that are smart, effective, thoughtful, and sustainable. Through this workshop you will be introduced to the disruptive and creative mental tools to activate positive change.
Dr Leyla Acaroglu connects systems, sustainability and design together as tools for addressing the planet’s biggest challenges. As a designer, sociologist, and sustainability provocateur, she was named 2016 United Nations Champion of the Earth for her internationally-recognised work in advancing science and innovation for sustainability. She is a TED speaker, entrepreneur, creator of the Disruptive Design Method, founder of the UnSchool and a sustainability provocateur who challenges people to think differently about how the world works.
