DESINST220 - Designing Futures of Work

Livelihoods are under threat for millions of people all around the world due to factors spanning globalization, climate change, automation, and more. This was true in 2019, but it is even more true now. The impact of Covid 19 especially on the livelihoods of marginalized and vulnerable workforce populations has been catastrophic. To thrive in this uncertain future, humans and their livelihoods will need to be adaptable to changing dynamics while maintaining a sense of agency and purpose. We will invite a cross section of subject matter experts with unique perspectives on livelihoods, as well as, experience designing for marginalized and vulnerable workforce populations to join class each week. They will cover topics ranging from policy, technology, learning, health, etc.
