The Masters of Design Futures program offered by Queensland College of Art Griffith University , is a major innovation in postgraduate design education.

It has been created because "design, in all its forms, has never confronted challenges of the scale of those now emerging" and "the stakes have never been higher, but neither have the opportunities"... by Dr Tony Fry (Adjunct Prof)

: New Design Responses in Indigenous Communities :: 25th Sept-17 Oct
Through photographs and data, German designer Christian Tietz highlights how Australian designers, can respond to reducing the 17-year gap between the average Australian and Indigenous Australian's life expectancy by producing products that fulfil the needs of specific cultural groups. "To improve a person's nutrition and health, strategies for healthy eating are not only required, but also the 'hardware' to cook and prepare food," says Tietz.
Stirring Appetites brings to light Tietz's design observations towards the social concern, that a product must respond to the user's needs, not the reverse.

Design Philosophy Politics - Launched Design Philosophy Politics seeks to expose the enormous power of design: how it shapes what we desire and how we live; how it drives demands for resources and energy and with what consequences. The articles published show that design is deeply implicated in the unsustainability of contemporary life. Yet it is only by design that things can become otherwise ... See http://designphilosophypolitics.com
____________. . eNews v2n12 Editorial brief Architecture, Industrial, Graphic and indeed ALL streams of design create major components in our existence and built environment. However bold and beautiful, new and functional, their existence has found even greater purpose: to illustrate best practice. That of course is best current environmental practice as, increasingly, other forms or inconsiderate practice will become and be seen to become more than irrelevant but actually downright dangerous.
A DIA talk this November in Sydney will highlight these issues and more, focusing on materials but also looking at the bigger picture. We need to make significant changes in our total existence as a society to ensure we experience a longer term future that we can be proud of. No matter how much image, glitz and glamour may be strewn about, it's now quite clear that you are either creating more problems by inaction or inappropriate action or you're becoming a part of the solution. Welcome to all those in the latter group and encourage all those not yet really participating to come aboard.

Design Philosophy Papers
Collection Three released. Explore design
philosophically with discussion on the importance of design in everyday
life, exploring its relation to ethics, disability, homelessness, sustainability,
social & historical change. The authors range across design research,
design theory, urban & architectural design, engineering design, development
studies & continental philosophy. www.desphilosophy.com/dpp/home.html complemented by design philosophy politics : designphilosophypolitics.informatics.indiana.edu
Design Philosophy Papers : Current.
Always substantive reading. (Two papers, relate to a SRD ChangeX theme), One paper
discusses ethics & design education, asking how designers, when knowing the right
thing to do for the good of all, might productively intervene to turn design opportunities
into change. Another reviews the role of education in the ethical engagement of
practitioners. The third asks the question "How may Interaction Design contribute
to sustainment noting many points including that 'software and hardware are presently
intimately connected to a cycle of mutual obsolescence'", completing with five
principles of sustainability.
Design Philosophy Papers propose to metamorphose. see : www.desphilosophy.com/dpp/dpp_journal/journal.html
