The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that design will have a major role to play in shaping our future. It has demonstrated the urgent need for us to radically rethink environments to be sustainable, just, and resilient in the face of the diverse and bigger shocks to come from the climate and biodiversity crises.
What are the radical changes that we could design to benefit the environment, and how can we reach them? Radical design thinking could focus on whole systems, landscapes, localities, and cities design, to addressing food poverty, malnutrition and food production methods, waste systems, materials, transport means and systems, biodiversity, and connecting with different species.
