Revitalizing Marginalized Communities for Sustainable Development by Design

Written by

This paper discusses the role of design in revitalizing marginalized communities facing economical, ecological, and cultural crisis. Using two rural towns in the US and China as locations for field study, this research team conducted interviews and observations, organized workshops and class projects, and participated in alternative agriculture practices to investigate opportunities for design research and design thinking methods to be utilized in the development of agricultural production, enhancement of economic growth, and improvement of community wellbeing. The paper concludes with recommendations for designers and community activists who might be interested in sustainable development for marginalized communities.
