Design Council’s Systemic Design Framework is an evolution of their world-famous Double Diamond and a methodology for designers to work together with non-designers to solve problems to complex challenges such as a the climate crisis. Design Council will take you through how to use the framework in your work, including some case studies, and provide further tools and methods including their new Value Framework which measures the wider value of design. It will also be a chance for you to prototype their new Design for Planet principles!
