Alastair Fuad-Luke, design educator, enabler, writer & activist; author of The Eco-design Handbook and Design Activism This well-researched, clearly written book is refreshingly to the point. Using a wide range of pertinent and up-to-date case studies it guides the reader to see design as an ethical, considered practice for the benefit of all rather than a consumer driven indulgence. This book will prove particularly vital reading for those who are carefully picking their way through the plethora of different perspectives the world of design presents.

It's the ideal roadmap for any designer seeking an alternative to business as usual. John Thackara, Doors of Perception Students in all the design professions should read this admirable and wise book by Chick and Micklethwaite ... it is a fascinating explication of the philosophy of design that offers a vision of how designers should think and work and what design should be ...

This beautiful book is superbly illustrated. Choice review, R. M. Labuz, Mohawk Valley Community College, USA Chick and Micklethwaite do an excellent job of explaining issues surrounding design and sustainability.

Guy Julier, University of Brighton, UK This book is an excellent general overview of how the global ecological crisis impacts the nature of design. Louise St Pierre, Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Canada This is a good compilation of material ... a readable introduction to this subject for architectural and design students. John Napier, University of Lincoln, UK This is a great book for demystifying some of the woolly topics surrounding sustainability. The book is well written and the authors tackle some big themes within the text, yet these these topics are succinctly explained in manageable chunks along with numerous case studies, each of which are clearly explained. As such it makes it an ideal undergraduate text. The chapter on Design Thinking and collaborative approaches to design is particularly interesting and relevant to a new generation designers. Tim Bones, K College, UK

Reseña del editor:

Design for Sustainable Change explores how design thinking and design-led entrepreneurship can address the issue of sustainability, examining how familiar design processes can be translated into methodologies for driving sustainable change in businesses, organisations and society more generally. It discusses the ways in which design thinking is evolving and being applied to a much wider spectrum of social and environmental issues, beyond its traditional professional territory. The result is designers themselves evolving, and developing greater design mindfulness in relation to what they do and how they do it. This book looks at design thinking as a methodology which, by its nature, considers issues of sustainability, but which does not necessarily seek to define itself in those terms. It explores the gradual extension of this methodology into the larger marketplace and the commercial and social implications of such an extension.
