Chapter 3 – The Theoretical Frame of the Co-Design Process

The theoretical frame of the co-design process

Co-design in the context of the Circular Economy goes beyond the traditional linear model of product design and manufacturing. It recognizes that sustainability cannot be achieved in isolation; it requires the active involvement of consumers, businesses, policymakers, and other stakeholders to create products and systems that are regenerative, restorative, and resilient. 

In each case, co-design leads to more effective, sustainable, and user-centered solutions by involving stakeholders in the design and decision-making process.
