Systematic issues such as climate change or resource depletion form massive challenges for our and future generations. Centralised design practises based on linear material flows are part of these problems. A transition towards a design model where resources and knowledge are shared between designers, users and producers, shows a lot more sustainable potential. The role of the (meta)designer in this model lies in engaging and enabling people to be part of this participatory design practise. During my PhD I will research how designing collective scenarios, executed as a series of (critical)artefacts, of such a networked model could make this possible future more tangible and create a platform for interaction between the different participants. The central question of this research is: How to create a collective scenario of a sustainable future?
