Internationalisation projects in the Maghreb conducted by the Dida Area Design
The complexity of the contemporary world requires an in-depth rethinking of the role of design and designers. Its very multi-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary nature, its attempt to interpret the complexity and challenges of contemporary life, requires dealing with ethical issues and continually elaborating new tools which enable the strength deriving from its flexibility and ability to take cross fertilisations on board to be exploited to the full. The Mediterranean can, in particular, be an extremely interesting scenario for experimenting with new educational trajectories which can contribute to reconnecting and recreating that inter-personal and exchange nature which has always been its key characteristic, by means of cultural diversity promotion.
