For me, today, design means hope
Sobre Ezio Manzini
For over two decades he has been working in the field of design for sustainability. Most recently, his interests have focused on social innovation, considered as a major driver of sustainable changes. In this perspective he started DESIS: an international network of schools of design, active in the field of design for social innovation and sustainability (http://www.desisnetwork.org). In parallel with this, he was among the promoters of the strategic design and service design courses at the Politecnico di Milano.
Presently, he is a Distinguished Professor of Design for Social Innovation at Elisava-Design School and Engineering, Barcelona, Honorary Professor at the Politecnico di Milano and Guest Professor at both, Tongji (Shanghai) and Jiangnan (Wuxi) Universities.
