Our society faces constant challenges as a result of how we continually shape our present and future. We do it by designing technologies, policies, laws, and whatever else makes up our lives. Unfortunately, the dialogue between people, disciplines, and cultures that could address these challenges is broken. Consequently, other means are used for resolving conflicts; they are seldom constructive, and they are occasionally devastating, war-like situations. By better understanding what design and its critical importance are, through a new comprehensive framework, we may be in a good position to design new transdisciplinary education programs that will improve people design and dialogue capabilities, making everybody equal partners in shaping our better future.
