    1. 1. the multi-local society . a design orienting scenario Ezio Manzini DIS-INDACO, Politecnico di Milano
    2. 2. sustainability .
    3. 3. <ul><li>lessons learnt 1 : </li></ul><ul><li>a radical system innovation </li></ul><ul><li>no single product or service proposal can be considered as a real step towards sustainability . </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>lessons learnt 2 : </li></ul><ul><li>a new sense of “the local” </li></ul><ul><li>sustainability calls for valorization of existing physical, social and cultural local resources . </li></ul>

    7. 7. <ul><ul><li>working hypothesis ( 1 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the transition towards sustainability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>will be a large system discontinuity , prepared by a multiplicity of oriented local system changes and driven by emerging visions of the future . </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. working hypothesis ( 2 ) designers (and design researchers) may play a relevant role conceiving and promoting of scenarios of sustainable ways of living and solution based on local system changes).
    9. 9. <ul><ul><li>working hypothesis ( 3 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the reduction of tangible products has to be (more than) compensated by increasing the quality of the commons (i.e. the social and environmental common goods) and the degree of satisfaction (i.e. subjects as agents of their wellbeing). </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. <ul><ul><li>working hypothesis ( 4 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a new design knowledge is needed to shift their focus from tangible goods to commons and form user-centred design to an actor-centred design (i.e. to design for active people endowed with capabilities and will of using them). </li></ul></ul>
