Abstract
This workshop introduces concepts of Design Thinking (DT) to address complex problems of sustainable development. The workshop contributes to explain: i) sustainability challenges; ii) DT processes and criteria of analysis; iii) associate DT criteria of analysis with economic, social and environmental dimensions of Sustainable Development (SD); and iv) analyze how much an organization and its business model satisfies DT criteria of analysis and SD dimensions. The aim is to further develop the approach for sustainable development by applying design thinking. The proposal is grounded in theoretical and practical backgrounds on DT and SD.
