DYB201 Impact Lab 3: Planet

This unit aids you to take design-led approaches to analyse, evaluate and deliver innovative and ethical responses or design propositions. It builds upon the skills and experiences gained in the first two impact labs, introducing a new scale of investigation through the exploration of complex issues that have a global impact. You will collaboratively analyse and evaluate these issues to develop responses or design propositions that provide avenues for more sustainable and ethical behaviours or systems. This approach will allow you to consider how design methods and approaches can be used to address complex global issues such as those defined by the United Nations (, 2017).
