Vol. 3 No. 2 (2022): Autumn issue
This issue, the fifth issue of DISCERN, is published just before COP27 is held in Egypt. As the world confronts worsening climate change, the need to make both small and large changes is increasingly obvious. Design for social change has a vital role. In this issue, we welcome contributions from Cyprus, Italy, New Zealand, the Philippines, the UK and the USA.
The articles cover design for social change to engage communities to combat the opioid epidemic in the USA, consumer attitudes towards eco-friendly packaging in the Philippines, domestic violence in New Zealand, a proposal for a benevolent future for fashion collaborations for a social purpose, graphic design principles for social cause advertising and design storytelling toward societal transformation and mutual learning in co-design.
