@ Design Diplomacy is a design research platform established by Alban Mannisi & Charles Anderson
which aims to investigate design practices and customs that exist outside of international environmental conventions
in order to report on and disseminate off-the-shelf and non-speculative design practices.
One activity conducted by this platform is Design Diplomacy, a series of
international embedded on-site workshops deployed in various places around the world.
Design Diplomacy's ambition is to emphasise and broker an expanded interdisciplinary and collaborative dialogue
between experts, governmental institutions, indigenous knowledges and practitioners, and diverse communities.
Design Diplomacy seeks to empower civil society and especially aims to offer to the new emerging generations
of practitioners in the built environment, a richer knowledge of the opportunities offered
by the expanded landscape economy.
Pursued through a series of workshops taking place in regions sharing global concerns through local issues,
These inquiries enable us to meet people in their own environment and context,
as well as the various types of stakeholders ignored by globalisation and the speculation
of current environmental markets. Internationally expanding the knowledge of these environmental
resilience movements is both a logical continuation of, and an opportunity to define,
a multi-sectoral and transnational critical tool for the built environment community.
