Some approaches in the discipline’s short history have marked the direction and type of commitments assumed by design and above all have offered a glimpse of where these challenges are pointing towards now. In fact, we find that design is not an independent activity but is always linked to a system which marks certain priorities according to the context. In order to reposition design objectives towards improving people's living conditions, modern society must deal with the serious conflicts revealing the inoperative nature of the current system and the need for a radical change towards sustainability. Design, together with other areas dedicated to planning, cannot be exercised as a frivolous activity linked to trends, consumption and fashion. Indicators such as the environmental and social crisis the world is experiencing are making other ideas resonate, bringing with them new opportunities for change. This paper makes an approach to Design from the perspective of the challenges and commitments it assumes for the well-being of individuals and society.
