aSDL is an online platform enabling cross-sharing of socio-ecological design projects, processes and products, indexed for easy reference.
We wish to highlight actors who have used design to handle social design problems and inspire others to do the same.
aSDL lists articles contributed by organizations and studios who use design to address socio-environmental issues, describing the project and its impact, even while providing an overview of the stakeholders and methods of funding.
By highlighting the power of design in handling socio-ecological complexities, we help de-mystify it and bring it to the forefront for inclusion into policy and action.
aSDL plans to develop into an online publication that further informs a series of presentations, panel discussions and professional development workshops across the country.
