"Thanks to this introductory course I've received the basic understanding of the Symbiotic Design Framework. Though this is totally new concept for me, I feel great sympathy and emotional connection to it. In my previous career I preferred to involve in sustainable projects and in all of them I seemed to move more intuitively.


Now I have a greater chance to try more systemic and mindful process of SDF in my next project. It was a pleasure to meet Gonzalo Raineri as an instructor and mentor.


Thank you."

“The course encourages critical reflection on design, "from and for design with the context", with society, with traditions and customs, with economics, with politics, without limitations...”
