Droughts, floods and other climate-related hazards present critical challenges for communities across the world. Design is well-placed to respond to such wicked problems (Buchanan, 1992) however a user-led approach to the development of climate services is rare (Christel et al, 2017). Instead, scientists and governments rely on research and innovation between science and industry to develop climate services for early warning systems and decision-making. The design community is uniquely placed to contribute to such developments, particularly in proposing new perspectives where citizens are themselves potential users of such services and at the forefront of change-making practices.
