(Re)Design: frameworks, tools and scenarios for the Systemic Design approach

(Re)Design: frameworks, tools and scenarios for the Systemic Design Approach


On Wednesday, 4th May 2022 from 17:00 p.m. to 18:30 p.m. (UTC+2)


Online Meetup (you will receive the access link by email after your registration)

Systemic Design integrates systems thinking and human-centred design, with the intention of helping designers to cope with complex design projects, placing the people and the planet at the heart of design.

We invite you to the 3rd (Re)Design Event – powered by for​you​and​your​cus​tom​ers – to discuss how to design in a more systemic way. Our guests will share tools, methodologies and real case scenarios on how to integrate systems thinking with human-centred design towards sustainability at environmental, social and economic level.

The recent challenges coming from the increased complexity caused by globalisation, migration and sustainability render often traditional design methods insufficient. We, digital creators, need better ways to avoid unintended side-effects. Systemic Design intends to develop methodologies and approaches that help to integrate systems thinking with human-centred design towards sustainability at environmental, social and economic level. This methodology has been developed to help designers working on major complex challenges that involve people across different disciplines and sectors. It places our people and our planet at the heart of design. It is a pluralistic initiative where many different approaches are encouraged to thrive and where dialogue and organic development of new practices is central. Mastering systemic design tools and methodologies can help designers and non designers to tackle the non-linearity that, among other attributes, characterise wicked and societal problems.

During this event Silvia Barbero will explain to us the methodology from a more theoretical point of view, and then Luca Baldini will present to us a real case scenario where this methodology has been applied and what were the learnings and insights gathered. After listening to Silvia and Luca sharing their experiences, you will then have opportunity to ask questions and share ideas in an open discussion.

The (Re)Design community brings together people who are working towards a more resilient, sustainable and inclusive tech-facilitated future. Our community is welcoming to all, regardless of background, gender, age, expertise, religion, … Our goal is to create a safe space for open exchange. We share experiences, celebrate our successes and failures, and we find inspiration. We care for a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Please feel welcome to join us, we’d appreciate your time.

Virginia Rispoli

Responsible Designer at foryouandyourcustomers Amsterdam

Virginia Rispoli will open the event and guide you through this session. She will be moderating the discussion and taking care of a smooth and seamless event running. 

Silvia Barbero

Associate professor in Design at Politecnico di Torino

Silvia Barbero will present to us the Systemic Design methodology, a methodology that merges complexity theories to manage big data and the design approaches to planning with them. A real example in the field of design policy will facilitate the understanding of its potentiality to address sustainable changes in the behaviours of the quadruple helix. 

Luca Baldini

Service and System Design Expert

What can we learn from practice, and what are the challenges we face when we apply systemic design methods and tools in the public sector? Luca Baldini will showcase two examples from the field: Exploring opportunities and synergies between open innovation, systemic design approaches and designing public services that are centred on citizens needs through the lens of life events.
