David Berman's book Do Good Design talks about designers responsibility in repairing our world.
You can take a Do Good Pledge here:
1. I will be true to my profession.
2. I will be true to myself.
3. I will spend at least 10% of my professional time helping repair the world.
Also you can post stories of your own Do Good Design to their Flickr site: www.flickr.com/groups/dogooddesign/
I will say all the MDes projects should go on there!
I just order the book to the library, so you guys (in Dundee) should be able to find it soon when you get back to the Uni~ Happy reading~
