This particular series of DESIS Philosophy Talks – platforms of discussion between design and philosophy on issues coming from the practices of social innovation – called DESIS Philosophy Talk “Regenerating Democracy: a design contribution” (www.desis-philosophytalks.org) is an answer to a call launched by Ezio Manzini and Victor Margolin called Open Letter to the Design Community: Stand Up for Democracy, in which the design community is asked to react, stand up and express our concern for democracy worldwide. This issue will be researched upon by means of transdisciplinary lenses - with a particular focus on philosophy - in order to create together a critical constructive reflection on project-based practices of social innovation aimed at enabling collaborative forms of democracy.

This DESIS Philosophy Talk is part of a series of different Talks on this issue taking place around the world, that started at the Cumulus conference in Kolding (DK) in May 2017. All the reflection produced will then be shared with the international design community, and made available on the DESIS website.
