Metadesigners Open Network: re-thinking the way designers are taught and practice

"Metadesign is an emerging conceptual framework within which designers will be able to work together in a more coherent and holistic way. Why? Because designing greener products and services will not be enough to remedy the environmental crisis that we face in the 21st century. We need more 'joined–up' ways to feed, clothe, shelter, assemble, communicate and live together. This will mean re–thinking the way that designers are taught, practice and organize themselves. It also entails re–designing design itself."
