Almost everything, other than what is naturally available, is designed intentionally. Being who we are influences the way in which we design, be they the numerous products that we use, our communication, the interactions/experiences that we choose to go through etc. It is understood that the designed environment influences the type of people we are to become and can hence influence how we interact and what we may design in future. Consequently, design offers a high leverage to intervene into and effect change across the interconnected systems of economy, technology, society, culture, and the environment. Recognizing such a responsible and pivotal role that ‘design’ has in creating a future that needs to be beneficial to humanity, PES University is starting the Faculty of Design with a broad vision to realize a design-spine to pedagogy that nurtures a vibrant culture of sustainable design leadership.
