Open invitation to Special Issue

The research team is guest editing a Special Issue in Sustainability: “Designing Products and Services for Circular Consumption”.

In this Special Issue, people’s consumption processes and their implications for design take centre stage. We welcome contributions that address questions such as the following:

  • What practicalities are associated with circular consumption, and how do these affect everyday life?
  • What are the differences between linear and circular consumption (from a user perspective), and what opportunities and challenges do these differences entail for design?
  • How can design enable people to shift from linear to circular consumption?
  • What perspectives, competences, processes, methods and/or tools do designers need in order to design products and services fit for circular consumption?

The submission deadline is December 31 2019. We look forward to your contribution!
