Abstract

What is Pluriversal Design? We believe it is a form of design that aims to nurture and highlight multiple ways of world-making and create conditions for multiple worlds to flourish. The concept of the pluriverse challenges one of the pillars of Western Modernity that is universalism—the idea that we all live in a single world—in favor of a multiplicity of possible worlds (Kothari et al. 2019). Since the 16th century, the world’s history has been told from the point of view and voices of people from Europe and, subsequently, English-speaking North-America (Global North).
