Society was a name given to a collective of human beings who live in a definable territory and share the same culture, network and have interactions. Humans as seen in history began hunting and gathering. As development happened they started living in societies that were horticultural, pastoral, agricultural and industrial.

 

There are five basic components of human societies: population, culture, material products, social organization, and social institutions. These components may either deter or promote social change. Designers are an irreplaceable link in this structure who help in promoting social change. Design in its traditional sense means the shaping of products and services and social design as the creation of social reality; design of the social world. Social design is mindful of the designer’s role and responsibility in society; and the use of the design process to bring about social change.

 

Some elements we see around us are a part of the social design but we don’t see them in a structured form. They are present in an abstract form in the scheme of things. The Indian culture and its religious structure is a great example of this design. We have a marriage system and many other social beliefs which are regulators of society’s anatomy. Besides that, other social innovations are also important which have kept India going through ages and centuries without many obstacles and controversies. Those are religion, food, clothes, festivals, traditions, lifestyles, family structure, secularism, the amalgamation of different religions and culture. These are some aspects of social design which already exist and have solved many problems of our Indian society without any noise. The Indian system has been helpful for the public to live with peace together through ages. It remains forever the same in essence, yet always adapts to the time and place.

 

Besides this many social movements have shaped the ethos of the Indian mindscape. Malpractices like Sati Pratha, Jauhar Pratha and Bal Vivah were abolished by the efforts of great social reformers. Mahatma Gandhi’s call for Non-Violence or Ahimsa was a great design that was a very critical tool for the Indian struggle for independence. Today’s society is suffering from so many social conflicts that need to be solved. The ancient references can be helpful to a great extent and if we start referring to history we will certainly find ways to solve current social problems with the help of those references.

 

Social design is mindful of the designer’s role and responsibility in society; and the use of the design process to bring about social change. There are some social designs that we don’t see in a concrete form but they are in abstract form, i.e. Indian culture and the religious structure is a great example of this design. In this 3 months’ part-time certificate course, we will be learning the Fundamentals of Social Design: Social Design in India and the USA. (A case study based approach). That prepares creative change makers with the tools and methods to advance equity and social justice and become pioneers and leaders in the practice.
