Our world is in crisis. The economic troubles that began in 2008 are still making their effects felt. In the face of pressing questions about the distribution of wealth, the achievability of universal prosperity, and the need to look at how our excesses are affecting the world around us, perhaps we should seize the current crisis as an opportunity to do things differently in the future. This idea seems to be catching on in the design world. But is it just hollow rhetoric and business as usual, or are things really going to change?
