Ahora que son diseñadores quiero ver quien se interesa en los que realmente lo necesitan.
Chic@s, lean a Papanek, “Design for the real world" les aseguro que encontrarán cosas MUY interesantes incluso no estando atraíd@s en el diseño social o sustentable.
Social design
Social design is design that is mindful of the designer’s role and responsibility in society; and the use of the design process to bring about social change.
Within the design world social design is sometimes defined as a design process that contributes to improving human well-being and livelihood. 
The agenda of social design is inspired by among others’ Victor Papanek’s idea that designers and creative professionals have a responsibility and are able to cause real change in the world through good design. 

Papanek writes about responsible design. Designers can contribute to designing more ecological products by carefully selecting the materials they use.

Papanek also remarks on designing for people’s needs rather than their wants. 
Responsible design includes many directions and one of these is design for the Third World.
