Abstract [sv]

I omställningsprocessen mot ett mer hållbart samhälle kan en designer ha en viktig roll för social innovation och samverkan. En designer kan underlätta för föreningar att själva lösa sina problem genom nerifrån-och-upp metoder. Detta betyder att den traditionella designerrollen är i förändring och att nya färdigheter efterfrågas.

Det här projektet har utforskat ett praktiskt och föreningsdrivet designangreppssätt. Målet med designprocessen var att designa en tjänst för stadsodlingsprojekt baserade i Stockholm. Tjänsten utvecklades tillsammans med aktiva medlemmar i projekten för att göra odlingen mer effektiv, tillgänglig och enkel att sprida.

Abstract [en]

More and more, designers take the role of facilitators in social innovation processes by using collaborative approaches aiming at a transition towards sustainability. To do so, they collaborate with active communities that create solutions for their own problems through bottom-up approaches. Consequently, the role of professional designers is shifting and new design skills and approaches are required.

This project explored a community driven design approach, on a practical level. The goal of the design process was to design a service for urban farming communities situated in Stockholm. This service was co created with members of the communities to make them more efficient, better accessible and easier to replicate.
