SAVE the DATE: DESIS Café Hosted by Polimi DESIS Lab from Politecnico di Milano, Italy




20 March 2024




Join us on March 20th, 2024, at 13.00h UTC for a vibrant DESIS Café hosted by  Polimi DESIS Lab from Politecnico di Milano in Italy.

DESIS Café is a virtual space where DESIS Labs come together to discuss their activities, expectations, thoughts, research, and projects. It serves as a hub for reinforcing connections within the DESIS community and exchanging knowledge about best practices and challenges in ongoing projects and initiatives.

About our host for this DESIS Café:

POLIMI DESIS Lab invites you to participate in the DESIS Café to discuss “Design for community development.” This DESIS Café will introduce the latest projects from the POLIMI DESIS Lab.

During the discussion, we would focus on the theme of “Design for community development” and we also hope to draw on project experiences from other DESIS Labs. Over the past decade, members of the DESIS network have been actively involved in many communities, developing design for social innovation projects in urban and rural areas. The experiences and impacts left behind in these activities, whether they are still actively growing or heading towards silence, are valuable legacies.

Specifically, we will explore the community building and community-centred design approach, goals, and legacies of engaging with communities in design for social innovation projects. We aim to address the following questions:

  • How do we define the community we are engaging with?
  • What are the goals we are designing for community development?
  • What can we bring to the community, and what kind of legacy can we leave behind?

If you would be willing to contribute to this discussion, we would appreciate it if you filled out this short form and contributed some materials for the topic discussion.”
