• We are a self-organized, citizen-driven project focused on prototyping and delivering solutions

    to humanity's big challenges.

     

    We launched with Bangkok’s Waste Management System - and just kicked off the 2.0 Lab to include Air Pollution and Unsustainable Fast Fashion

    See details below for how to get involved in #climateaction and #circulardesign November's Workshops focused on Systemic Design for Change

     

    เรามุ่งมั่นสร้างแนวทางในการแก้ไขปัญหาสังคม

    โจทย์แรกของเราในเดือนมีนาคมนี้คือ “ระบบการจัดการขยะในกรุงเทพฯ”

  • Join us live Thursday, November 14 at 5pm ICT

    We will be sharing the Circular Design Lab story with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's DIF

    Follow Along, Get involved! The #climateaction workshops are on

    Systemic Design Workshops

    Registration and Participation in Workshops 1-3 Required

    (experience is offered free, at no cost)

    Who's co-leading the workshops? Take a look at the team and profiles here.

     

    About systemic design as an innovation process: Our workshops are designed to build off of one another, so from the first workshop to the last you will learn about systems change and human centered design as tools that help us discover possible ways to see the challenges (of waste, air pollution, fashion) in new and different ways. We will also work to find 'leverage' points, or strategic ways to experiment with solutions to the challenges we see. We will work in teams- you can come alone, encourage a friends to apply with you or simply meet other likeminded folks to become a team with during the workshops.

  • What happened at

    the 2.0 Launch Event?

    #climateaction #circulardesign

    It took place in the heart of Bangkok -

    We dove into what it takes to tackle waste management, air pollution and unsustainable fast fashion.

    This is a space where talk leads to action and now we invite people from all walks of life to join us for the Systemic Design Workshop Series - more below!

  • WELCOME TO THE CIRCULAR DESIGN LAB

    We kicked off in Bangkok - join what we have started

    Our Purpose

    We are an experimental (open innovation) lab – led 100% by a team of volunteers. We bring people together to address environmental and social challenges using circular design as one pathway to explore systems intervention possibilities- or in other words- solutions to challenges.

    What We Do

    We leverage an ecosystem approach that embraces collaboration. We carefully curate panel discussions and custom systemic design workshops to tackle a complex contemporary challenge: our first "lab case" is focused on Bangkok's Waste Management System. For our first launch round we had 3 teams develop prototypes to tackle: mindsets, single use plastic, food waste and recycling systems. For our 2.0 (September re-launch) we are integrating more themes, including air pollution, fashion/clothing supply chains, ocean plastic, while continuing with waste management systems.

    How To Join

    We deeply believe in the power of inclusion and diversity – and from talks to workshops we invite all people, from all walks of life to join. There are easy ways to get involved- start by signing up for updates and showing up!

    The Dynamic

    Our structure is flat and organic. We don't have a hierarchy, but we do have dedicated and self-organizing doers. We are a 'team of teams' and will be sharing our learnings as we go as part of the Presencing Institute's Societal Transformation Lab . This is a larger initiative – we are one of 300 teams around the world convening to work on local issues.
