At its core, [Design Science Lab] is a new way of seeing the world – one that takes a global, whole systems perspective that incorporates a well-developed sensibility about social justice and environmental sustainability.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2006 Design Science Lab intensive, run by the Buckminster Fuller Institute and Big Picture Small World. Design Science Lab works with students, design professionals and “ordinary citizens” to develop design approaches for meeting the Millennium Development Goals.

Participants, working in teams, develop strategies that demonstrate how the MDGs can be achieved – along with what resources it will take, how much it will cost, and where the money and resources can be obtained.

The application deadline is May 1 for summer 2006 programs in New York and Asheville, NC.
