Abstract

This short paper explores the people-product relationships that are forged in the course of everyday life and addresses the role of design ecologies in fostering long term socio-ecological adaptability and resilience. I reflect on the premises and principles of Transition Design and explore the different kinds of knowledge required for designing with the natural world in mind.
