Interventions in Recycling
This project has been developed during the Design Innovation course at the Glasgow School of Art and it regards the formulation of social interventions. That is, first of all, the investigation of the everyday social situations and the collection of insights and potential problems that are created. Then, the collected insights are used in order to reveal potential opportunities and solutions that in short, will make some situations in people’s lives easier or more pleasant.
My decision about a potential intervention in the social context through design, regarded the crucial issue of recycling in Glasgow. After some insights concerning the low engagement of the citizens with recycling, it was observed that a good opportunity could be the establishment of a further interaction between humans and recycle bins, targeting especially adolescents and children.
