What will happen to design in the coming years? What will be the aims of product design? What will design mean and how will it be evaluated? A rethink that takes into account the reality of tomorrow is urgent, yet has hardly even begun. With our technological-industrial civilisation threatening to destroy life on Earth, far-reaching changes are inevitable. We can only hope that these changes will come about through our own conscious efforts, and will not be forced upon us by catastrophe. Perhaps they will lead, not to an impoverishment of our lives, but to enrichment in a human sense.
