Increasingly, design has shown how it can and should also be a tool for debate and critique. tool at the service of debate and critique. Aware that the system in which we live is imperfect, generating many environmental and social imbalances, we need to develop better mechanisms to question it, making it easier for society as a whole to discuss it so that it can finally make the changes it considers necessary.

This course aims to give a general overview of this, briefly examining some of the main strategies for a more sustainable design that generates social change.
