Master Design (MDes) Social Innovation

Ravensbourne
Campus Part time 1 - 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom London

The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Sustainability 2017. The Master of Design in Social Innovation applies the lens of design thinking to address some of society’s most intractable social, environmental and economic challenges. Its focus is on the organisational models, methods and approaches needed to shape positive social change, sustainable growth and new business models. In the face of the promise of untold growth we are now confronted by a harsh reality: that in the second decade of the 21st century the traditional model of ‘business as usual’ is no longer viable. In applying a range of approaches to designing and prototyping social ventures and models of organisation, the MDes in Social Innovation will equip you with a practice-based approach to embedding innovation in the area of sustainability, community resilience, corporate social responsibility, venture philanthropy and organisational agility. Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment. The MDes Social Innovation will demonstrate that many of the most successful designs, innovations and innovators have learned to operate across the boundaries between disciplines, sectors, organisations and traditional services. At its heart lie three design principles: an holistic approach - the need to approach innovation from a ‘holistic’ point of view, drawing on its potential impact in terms of people, technology, the environment, psychological and emotional meaning and long-term sustainability a core intent - the potential to develop a ‘core intent’ and value proposition to organisational models to stimulate commercial and brand value through interaction, social value, collaboration and ideas generation participatory and inclusive - the importance of developing social and environmental solutions ‘with’ and ‘by’ key stakeholders, customers/markets etc. and not simply ‘to’ and ‘for’ people. The course will develop your ideas and skills in people-centred and organisational leadership as a way of transforming the way that public, private and not-for-profit services are shaped using design thinking methodologies.

Best Part time Masters in Sustainability 2017. Master Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes Please note that this program is entirely taught in FRENCH Le Master "Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes", habilité par le Ministère de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche, a pour objectif de former des architectes locaux du développement de la sécurité alimentaire. Ces cadres expérimentés sont capables de construire une méthode pragmatique et efficace d’évaluation de cette dernière. Ils sont amenés à occuper des postes à responsabilités dans différents secteurs. Compétences visées Acquérir les connaissances techniques nécessaires à la compréhension des multiples facettes de la sécurité alimentaire ; Acquérir et/ou approfondir les compétences permettant de gérer des équipes pluridisciplinaires impliquées dans l’analyse des problèmes de sécurité alimentaire, à savoir : animer, coordonner, travailler en équipe, savoir s’entourer, avoir un sens de l’organisation et de la planification (...) ; Être capable d’avoir une vision très large de la problématique sécurité alimentaire tant dans le diagnostic que dans l’élaboration des propositions en y associant tout autant un esprit analytique que synthétique. Le contexte Malgré les progrès considérables réalisés tant au niveau de la production agricole qu’à celui de la transformation et de la conservation des produits, ou encore de la distribution des denrées alimentaires, le nombre de personnes souffrant de la faim ou de malnutrition dans le monde augmente. La forte hausse du prix de certaines matières premières, amorcée en 2007, a démontré de manière flagrante "la fragilité du système alimentaire mondial et la vulnérabilité de la sécurité alimentaire" (Sommet mondial de l’alimentation, 2009). Cette situation ne devrait cesser de se dégrader, eu égard aux simulations portant sur l’évolution démographique mondiale et, plus encore, régionale, avec une part relative accrue des populations des pays en développement et en transition. Enfin, l’urbanisation croissante rend encore plus complexe la gestion de cette sécurité alimentaire. Concevoir la mise en œuvre des moyens permettant de gérer la disponibilité et l’accessibilité des ressources alimentaires ainsi que ceux permettant la satisfaction de la prise alimentaire constitue l’objectif de cette formation. Le Master "Management de la sécurité alimentaire des villes" dure 16 mois, dont 12 en France. La formation est organisée autour de 8 Unités d’enseignement (UE) se déroulant de septembre à avril. Les enseignements sont dispensés en français. Les Unités d’Enseignement : Les UE transversales : Le système d’approvisionnement et de distribution alimentaire : sécurité et insécurité alimentaires, notion de filière, approche systémique dans l’approvisionnement et la distribution alimentaire (...) ; Politiques agricoles, marchés agricoles et souveraineté alimentaire : évolutions des politiques agricoles, l’OMC, (dé)régulation des échanges mondiaux, importations et facture alimentaire (...) ; L’accompagnement des projets : accompagnements technique et financier, les systèmes d’assurance... Les UE sectorielles : La production agricole et ses agricultures : les agricultures (vivrière, paysanne, écologiquement intensive, commerciale, industrielle, périurbaine) et leurs facteurs de production ; La récolte, la transformation et la distribution des produits alimentaires : les groupes d’aliments, les outils analytiques, les méthodes de stabilisation, de conservation, de transformation des produits alimentaires, la gestion de l’hygiène (...) ; L’approvisionnement et la distribution des produits alimentaires : l’analyse des filières, l’étude des flux de biens et de services relatifs à la sécurité alimentaire, les (infra)structures, le fonctionnement des marchés (...) ; Les approches nutritionnelle, socio-culturelle et éducative de l’alimentation : les notions nutritionnelles de base aux principaux stades de la vie, les contaminants, les pathologies nutritionnelles, les déterminants d’un modèle de consommation alimentaire, le modèle de consommation urbaine, les outils et méthodes d’éducation nutritionnelle (...) ; Démographie, urbanisation, utilisation des territoires et sécurité alimentaire : diagnostic initial, anticipation des évolutions territoriales...

M.Plan. in Urban Design, Sustainability and Conservation From small neighborhoods to large metropolitan centers, urban areas in India today are in a state of rapid growth and transformation. Rapid urbanization and relentless globalization threaten to erode, diminish, and erase the cultural heritage (tangible and intangible) along with irreparable destruction to the natural environment of places. We believe that a deeper understanding and engagement with the cultural heritage and natural environment and ecology of particular locales will lead to creative and innovative strategies to protect heritage values while reaching for inclusive and sustainable goals in the design of urban landscapes. The Master of Planning in Urban Design, Sustainability, and Conservation, prepares students with the knowledge and skills to understand and analyze urban areas as spatial structures, social networks, cultural landscapes, and service systems, and to design better, and more inclusive and sustainable urban environments responsive to the particular natural and cultural identities and heritage of the place.
