Design | Strategic Design Scenarios

Présentation de la structure
Strategic Design Scenarios is a sustainability innovation lab specialised in strategic design, scenario building, co-design with users and community centred approaches. SDS activities are based on projective techniques such as storytelling, story-boarding, scenarios scripting. SDS has been founded by François Jégou. He is also scientific director of the public innovation lab 27e Région in France and the co-ordinator of the DESIS Europe, the European branch of the Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability network. He teaches strategic design at ENSCI Les Ateliers Paris, La Cambre, Brussels and Politecnico, Milan.

We are constructing scenarios of sustainable ways of living at the horizon of 2030- 2050 at European, national, regional and local levels. We imagine new products-services systems for sustainable lifestyles. We make visualisation of breakthrough solutions to support social conversation with potential users. We put forward field work to meet social innovators. We organise workshops of co-design with stakeholders. We are implementing action-research on new behaviours and sustainable consumption. We are working with policy makers to improve design thinking in policy making and public services. And more...

We also appreciate people with knowledge in video editing and animation (Final Cut Pro, After effect). Students who are able to draw, or at least not afraid of taking a pen, are quite appreciated as well (we're not talking about industrial design sketches but quick drawings of systems and people, for more information please check our website and videos).
