“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
— R. Buckminster Fuller

I, for one, welcome our new, youthful, innovative, ethical, idealistic, energetic overlords.

It seems, more and more, that the big picture is coming into better focus. The younger generation is much more aware and vocal about the problems that they are beginning to recognize. The old, rich hierarchy is exploiting the young, poor network, and they are organizing to protest, declaring that change is coming whether we like it or not.

A Builders Collective

Human-centred design involves a process of understanding what is most important and what we can do that will be the most effective in solving the challenges we face. This will mean working together, regardless of our differences, to gain awareness of both our collective responsibility and our agency as creative collaborators in restoring ourselves and our world.

We can no longer concentrate on fragmented and siloed disciplines. The ecosystem is an interconnected whole, and we will need to work together to explore how we imagine, design, and build the future together.
