The Designing Change Special Interest Group (SIG DfC) brings together researchers and practitioners who explore designing for individual behavior change, organizational change and societal change. The group studies theories of change and approaches that support designers to be intentional and strategic about change.
In its first decade, the SIG was called Design for Behaviour Change and aimed to generate knowledge to address the challenge of designing for sustainability and health behaviors such as recycling, increasing physical activity, or taking medications. Now, the SIG is expanding to consider not only human behavior but also organizational and societal behavior, also in light of bringing radical and meaningful transformations and transitions toward productive, just, healthy, and sustainable futures.
