Politics of the Everyday
By Ezio Manzini
Each of us develops and enacts strategies for living our everyday lives.
These may confirm the general tendency towards new forms of connected solitude, in which we work, travel and live alone, yet feel sociable mainly by means of technology.
Alternatively, they may help to create flexible communities that are open and inclusive, and therefore resilient and socially sustainable.
In Politics of the Everyday, Ezio Manzini discusses examples of social innovation that show how, even in these difficult times, a better kind of society is possible.
By bringing autonomy and collaboration together, it is possible to develop new forms of design intelligence, for our own good, for the good of the communities we are part of, and for society as a whole.
