This 1-hour discussion hopes to shed light on what we mean by the term “systemic design” and how we can approach it. The Speakers: Tom Bosschaert is the Founder and Director at Except, a design firm which develops and implements strategies to make cities, buildings, companies, industries and day-to-day life more resilient, more sustainable, and more human. Tom has recently developed the Symbiosis in Development methodology, combining systems thinking, complexity analysis, iterative design thinking and co-creation in multi-disciplinary teams, and shared this as a free e-book: Virginie Gailing is a co-designer and permaculturist. She is teaching “Systemic Design” and “Participatory & transformation design” at the Design Akademie Berlin. She is a collaborator at the Systemic Design Group, a community-of-practice who seek to make Systems Thinking more approachable. Kristel Van Ael is a Designer and Creative Director of the Namahn design agency, which specialises in human-centered design. She also teaches product-service systems and systemic design at the University of Antwerpen. Namahn has also collaborated to produce a Systemic Design Toolkit which summarises some principles and provides templates to facilitate the process of systemic design:
