Social Design Tour - Episode #3
In Episode #3 we are linking up with the social design researcher Pelle Ehn from at the the research lab for collaborative media, design, and public engagement (MEDEA) at the Malmö University in Sweden. We met him in his private home in Copenhagen and had a walked the dog Tosca together.
As a child of 1968, Pelle Ehn has always been engaged in changing society. For over forty years, the researcher has been a pioneer in what is now known as co-design. As Professor of Interaction Design at Malmö University, Ehn examines the role of design in enhancing democracy, particularly for those in the margins of society.
“The driving force –even though the specific content has changed over the years– has had to do with how people can have a say in their everyday lives, be it at work or at home,” Ehn says. “It has always been a question of how people, in a democratic way, can participate in making their futures.”

The "Social Design Tour" is a communication experiment by Daniel Falk, Julian Wildgruber, Marcus Adam, Fabian Schaller and Christopher Riley. Together with the Hans Sauer Foundation and the Impact HUB Munich the film production companies MadeVision and Eyetrip co-created a roadtrip through Europe to visit the most intresting social design projects and experts and make them visible.
Social Design is a design practice that goes beyond a purely technical or consumer-oriented design of products and services. Social Design creates social added value by becoming an advocate of social concerns that either the state or the market do not serve adequately or at all.
