About this workshop

We are increasingly more aware of the impact that our lifestyle and practices have in the wider world surrounding us - socially, environmentally, culturally, ethically. We notice the growing number of small-scale businesses, start-ups or social enterprises wanting to express how their story positively impacts, inspires, or contributes, to the local and wider context. The digital age has enabled us to easily convey and disseminate such messages but also to question transparency and authenticity.

This workshop will explore a practical tool currently in development as part of a wider research project. The aim is to empower small-scale projects to articulate and communicate their narrative of positive impact through their own means. In this practical and dynamic session we will work with real-life case studies to co-create stories and design outcomes that embody values of a sustainable 'good life’.

If you are interested in design research, or involved with small-scale projects looking to communicate positive impact, this workshop will provide insights on how to do so with the assets and resources you already have.

Takeaways

  • Thinking laterally about what communicating positive impact is.
  • The potential of the digital age to leverage sustainable practices.
  • Insights into how to use the already existing assets and resources to articulate and communicate narratives of positive impact.
