Design for Migration, the online platform that collects the most interesting design initiatives that support and tell the story of the migration issue in Europe, was founded in 2018.
This book comes to life just one year later and it collects the most interesting projects: those that, exploring the space between socio and social design, show how it is possible to include vulnerable categories, transform relationships within a community, trying to deconstruct those invisible walls that all too often cross our society.
