Scientific paper contribution: How to design in a degrowth society?
Abstract: The approach of today’s design practise should give prospects for the transformation into a post-growth and sustainable field of work. The shifting from a technocratic to a social construction qualifies designers for this job because he/she is traditionally responsible for the definition of use the act of using and its shaping. The academic debates in design are all along critical. The idea of a change in consumption to radical turn of degrowth offers designers the possibility to experiment with reshaping society and products.
