The current model of consumption is one of the main reasons for the social and environmental problems that our society has been passing through. Currently, according to Manzini (2008) and Abreu (2016) the best answers for these issues are local actions, made by people who are directly affected by them. The designer, as a holistic professional, can become the facilitating agent who helps (through good projects, products or services) propagates these local answers. The present project is based on that. It aims to valorise and revitalize braiding knowledge of Kaingang Indigenous culture, through experimentations and development of fashion products using and resignfying textile waste (Upcycling) through native braid used in their basketry. The concept of Co-design (AGUAS, 2012) was widely used in the work with the artisans occurred. The result from this work showed that with the practice of co-creation it is motivating in the sense of including the indigenous community in the work with the university and they are being part of the results.

This review seeks to update our knowledge about the positive effects in the use of VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) for immersive systems in the aid of human well-being and quality of life. Through a systematic Literature review which includes all peer-reviewed research documents that are relevant to the objective to ensure a comprehensive search. Four research databases were identified: (I) web of Science, (II) IEEEExplore, (III) ScienceDirect and (IV) PubMed. Only primary empirical studies on the use of HMDs were included. The review identified a number of situations where HMDs are useful for aid and improvements of the human well-being, rehabilitation, and improvement in the quality of life, thus, contributing in the field of sustainability study. Although there are several studies, more research is needed on the use of this technology within settings to ensure recommendations that can implement the improvement of use for social sustainability and sustainable development.
